“It’s the vision not the view that can take us beyond expectation.”

                               Santa Clarita Valley Facilities Foundation

                               A Non-Profit Public Benefit Corporation

                      T     he Santa Clarita Valley Facilities Foundation, a non-profit public benefit corporation, was founded to provide assistance to

                            the William S. Hart Union High School District in locating, acquiring and developing new school sites.
                            Each project has begun with a request from the Hart District based upon the school district’s projected growth and
                       long-term strategic planning goals. Acquisition and development of school sites in this manner enables the school district to

                       meet student population needs independent of new home developments and market cycles.
                               The seven-member Board of Directors serves on a volunteer basis, without pay or compensation for services. In addition to five
                       community leaders appointed to the board, two additional seats were created as a means of expanding independent oversight: one
                       seat reserved for the Hart District Board President and a second seat held for the District Superintendent or his designee.
                               Although not a legislative body, the Foundation follows the “open-meeting” laws. Perhaps most important in times of
                       tight government budgets, the Foundation has been fully self-funded, requiring no taxpayer subsidy. All expenses are paid out
                       of its own funds generated from its development activities.

                               Funds generated are held for a public purpose and invested in our schools and other public facilities for the benefit and
                       education of our children furthering the Foundation’s “brick-and-mortar” mission.
