WeClimb LogoWe got the NOD! That’s the Notice of Determination from the city planning commission, clearing the way for us to start building the new campus for Everest Value School. To celebrate this latest milestone, three of our board members have joined forces to magnify your contributions to the We Climb campaign with a $150,000 challenge grant! New contributions will now be matched dollar-for-dollar by new Vice-Chair Vince Gonzales and Jeffrey Garcia of the Value Schools Board of Directors and fellow Stanford University alumnus Juan Bustamante of the Value Schools Foundation Board. Their dedication to Value Schools lives up to Stanford’s mission “to advance knowledge and contribute to society through research and the education of future leaders.”
Everest Value Rendering
Our educators develop future leaders at Value Schools every day. We are extraordinarily grateful to Vince, Jeff, and Juan for helping us expand our reach and build a new home for the flourishing school community Everest Value has been growing since its first Base Camp meeting in 2014.
Vince, Jeff, and Juan invite you (yes, even the Cal Bears out there!) to experience the joy of opening new doors of academic excellence for young people working so hard to emulate their success. Please help us make the most of their generous offer!
