How You Can Help

If you would like to support CVEF's mission and help provide more opportunities for CV students to grow and thrive, there are many ways you can help! From personal contributions and special events to business tax credit programs, we offer a variety of avenues to contribute to the future success of our children and our community.


Personal Contributions

YOU can make difference! In fact, individual contributors to CVEF come from all walks of life. While many gifts are made by check, you can also make a difference through "planned giving" - bequeathing cash gifts, securities, life insurance policies, real estate or gifts from retirement plans. If you or your spouse work for a company with a matching gift program, please consider CVEF for your charitable efforts. Our aim is to foster a spirit of giving that touches every household in our community! CVEF is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Make your tax-deductible donation today.


Educational Improvement Tax Credit Program

Support initiatives you believe in and dramatically bolster the impact of your business gift. CVEF receives contributions through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Your business can receive tax credits up to 75% of its contribution to a maximum of $750,000 per year. And, if your business commits to making the same donation for two consecutive years, your business can receive a tax credit up to 90% of its contribution.

Golf Classic

Our signature fundraising event, the Golf Classic is fast becoming one of the must-play golf tournaments of the Fall! The CVEF Golf Classic features championship golf in a modified scramble format, cocktails and dinner followed by a live raffle and auction. Numerous sponsorships and hospitality opportunities enhance the tournament, held annually in September.


Derby Day

In the tradition of Churchill Downs, enjoy the next best thing to being at the track on race day! Dine on a traditional Derby menu and sip mint juleps while watching a live showing of the Kentucky Derby amid the panoramic views of Lancaster County. Ladies' and men's hat contests, wagering for spectacular donated prizes and live entertainment highlight this memorable event. The support of sponsors is graciously appreciated.

Staff Tribute Program

Imagine a reward that both recognizes the important contributions teachers, secretaries, custodians and other support staff have made this school year and provides new educational opportunities to CV students… That's what our Staff Tribute Program does! Consider making a monetary donation to CVEF in the name of a special employee and your gift will be returned to CV students as funding for new, innovative programs. Individuals are notified of all gifts in their honor. The CVEF Staff Tribute Program is a popular and thoughtful holiday gift for a teacher! No gift is too small.

Please use the forms available below for your contribution and either give them to your school secretary in an envelope marked “CVEF TRIBUTE” or mail them to:

2110 Horseshoe Road
Lancaster, PA 17601

Checks can be made out to CVEF. If you have any questions about the Foundation or the “Staff Tribute Program” please contact Gerry Huesken at or 717-399-1550.
