Our Mission

The MAGIC Annual Appeal provides a way for our families, individuals and businesses to work together to help our children achieve their potential in an increasingly complex, interesting and challenging world by providing resources for a broad, engaging curriculum beyond what can be offered through public funding.


MAGIC was formed many years ago by concerned parents at Mountain View School to raise funds to provide vital programs for our children. As a result of the generosity of the MVS community, MAGIC has been able to fill in the budget shortfall by providing money to fund the Art, Computer Science, Library, Music, Physical Education, Science and STEM MVS programs from Kindergarten through Sixth Grade.

For the 2017-2018 school year, the State of California and the Goleta Union School District have appropriated about 50% of the required funds toward our Specialists Program and we need the MVS Community to come together to fill in the rest.

The “MAGIC Fund” is part of the Goleta Union School District (GUSD) and therefore shares governmental unit tax section 179(c)(1) status. The GUSD Federal Tax ID number is 77-0068725. All payments intended for MAGIC should bear this Tax ID, but must also clearly reference “MVS MAGIC Fund” so that funds are applied as intended.

All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
