The Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance (EACEA) set up a fundraising program in the form of the Pacific View School (PVS) Donor Recognition Wall in order to further the continued efforts to rehabilitate and transform PVS into a thriving community arts and ecology center. The donor wall is also a way to engage and recognize local citizens who contributed to the continuation of PVS as a quality place of learning. The Class of 2016 Inaugural Donor Wall, which sold about 60 of the 100 available tiles, celebrates the community’s early adopters as the first class since the school’s closing in 2003, and honors the vision of the Encinitas’ founders that built the original schoolhouse in 1883.

In addition to the wall, EACEA is in the process of creating its PVS strategic plan as well as a comprehensive high-dollar capital campaign to fund the estimated $2.5 million restoration of PVS over the next two years. Using its 2016 San Diego County grants, EACEA will continue ongoing maintenance and repair of the school this year. Learn more at www.eacea.org.
