THE CARLSBAD EDUCATION FOUNDATION

Supporting Carlsbad Students for 30 Years

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides private support for public education programs throughout the Carlsbad Unified School District. Since its founding in 1983, CEF has invested over $6 million in programs for CUSD students. CEF is the only organization in Carlsbad charged with raising district-wide support for every school and student in our elementary, middle and high schools.

CEF’s impact on CUSD students and our community is unmistakable.

Every day, thousands of students are participating in CEF-funded programs.

Every week, individual, corporate and foundation contributors are supporting CEF’s mission.

Every month, CEF is engaged in activities at our schools and events throughout the community to raise support for vital programs.

And every year, CEF continues to grow with new and expanded educational programs that impact and empower local students.
