What we aim to solve New!

Due to our current economic climate, decreased funding has taken important programs from our schools. California schools have a nearly $2,000 gap in funding per pupil compared to the national average. The WGEF exists to bridge those funding gaps and bring those programs back to our students. The WGEF relies on support from the Willow Grove Family and its community. Through supporting the WGEF you will not only help the students to broaden and improve their educational experience each day, you will also discover ways to meet other Willow Grove

The WGEF exists to bridge the funding gaps left by the federal and state budgets and bring important programs back to our students. That includes: TECHNOLOGY SCIENCE MUSIC P.E. IMPACT TEACHERS KINDERGARTEN AIDES

We employ several campaigns throughout the fiscal/school year to reach our fundraising goals. *Direct Ask Campaign - we urge families to donate $350 per enrolled student at our elementary school *Golf Tournament - full day golf tournament including cocktail hour and dinner, where community sponsorships, silent auction, live auction and raffle help us raise the largest amount of funds *Spring Gala - cocktail hour, dinner, dancing, raffle, silent & live auction with community sponsorships

Every board member is a non-paid volunteer that dedicates countless hours to our fundraising efforts all year long. We have succeeded and exceeded our fundraising goals year after year since 2009.

We are a non-profit with the sole indicator of progress being the amount of funding generated per campaign/event. Our progress is measured every second of every day based on the monies coming in.

Our organization provides the following for our school, thanks to a dedicated board that works seamlessly with our community to raise the funds necessary to support our children: Credentialed Impact teachers who provide individualized instruction to students Music teacher Physical Education teacher Excelling-student Math Impact teacher Hands-on Science teacher Kindergarten aides Computer Resource teacher Online educational enrichment applications Classroom technology

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?

Not Applicable


Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
