Our Mission: The Papillion-La Vista Schools Foundation strives to enhance educational opportunities for the students of the Papillion La Vista Community Schools by offering the opportunity to participate in activities and take advantage of programs that would not otherwise be possible.

Our Core Values: Stewardship, Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Communication

Founded in 1986, the Papillion-La Vista Schools Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that works closely with Papillion La Vista Community Schools to enhance the educational opportunities for children by offering opportunities and activities that would not be possible if only tax dollars were available. Close ties to the district and community ensures the best ideas to support students, teachers, technology, and programs become a reality.

The Foundation reaches out to staff, parents, alumni and the community to create the financial and supportive resources needed to augment the overall educational experience of Papillion-La Vista children. Immediate and endowed support is provided by donors and parents through Papillion-La Vista Schools Foundation for the benefit of the children, staff, and families of Papillion La Vista Community Schools.
