What is Golden Bear Foundation? Who are You? What Do You Do?
We are a group of parents dedicated to helping the students of TVHS. Our foundation is a non-profit organization (private foundation) which serves as an umbrella organization for our member clubs. We provide support, banking services, tax advantages, and other benefits to our member groups.
We organize several large fundraisers to help support our own charitable endeavor: raising funds for Temecula Dollars for Scholars and awarding grants to groups on campus. Each year, we award at least three $1,000 scholarships to deserving graduating seniors as well as issue at least $2500 in grants to deserving clubs on campus.
Can I Make a Tax Deductible Donation to One of the Golden Bear Foundation Clubs?
Yes! Your donation to the TVHS Golden Bear Foundation can be directed to the member club per your instructions.
Are you like the PTSA or ASB?
No, those are both wonderful organizations; however, we are our own entity – a small group with our own mission and purpose.
When I Participate in a Golden Bear Foundation Event Like Bingo, Who or What Exactly am I Supporting?
It depends on the event, but rest assured, your support is appreciated and ultimately benefits the students of TVHS. For example, proceeds from our bingo nights are split between participating groups and the foundation. Your participation helps your student’s group and helps provide funds for our annual scholarship awards. Win-win!
