Adopt A+ Grants Program
Each year, the Education Foundation Board of Directors awards grants to Virginia Beach schools for innovative and creative programs that benefit students. Each teacher-designed project is aligned with the school division’s strategic framework. Schools are awarded funds through a blind review application process, which means no information pertaining to the school is included.
House Building Projects
Ten single-family dwellings have been successfully planned, financed, constructed and sold since the Education Foundation’s inception. The 10th House Project at 1909 Evar Place in Virginia Beach was sold in August 2016. These projects have impacted the Virginia Beach City Public Schools in the following ways:
- Hands-on training provided to over 80 Technical and Career Education students annually;
- Scholarships and grants awarded from the net profits totaling over $790,000; and
- Community involvement in the form of donations of materials and time valued at over $150,000 per house.
The 22nd annual golf tournament was held at Heron Ridge Golf Club Thursday, June 28, 2016. The tournament raises approximately $35,000 to support the Education Foundation’s Adopt A+ Grants program. See photos from the 2016 tournament on Facebook.
Pearls of Wisdom Party
The Education Foundation hosts the Pearls of Wisdom oyster roast and barbecue every spring at the 24th Street Park at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Attendees enjoy live music and an all-you-can eat buffet of oysters, barbecue, fried chicken, hush puppies and more. The annual fundraiser benefits VBCPS teachers and students by raising funds to support the Education Foundation's Adopt A+ Grants program.
