CEF Giving (so far) in 2023–24: $179,640*
Each year, we provide block grants to each of the schools in Claremont Unified School District and Teacher Innovation Grants for special projects lead by the district's educators. Since our inception, these grants have totaled to over $4 million.
*Includes Student Impact Grants
for Art & Music
Giving to CEF supports our schools, supports our students, and supports our community.
"Without the extraordinary commitment and hard work of the CEF Board, as well as community support of CEF, we would not be able to continue providing the current level of art and music education in our elementary schools, nor would we be able to provide the volume of technology that has been purchased at each of our schools.”
Dr. Jim Elsasser, Superintendent, Claremont Unified School District
Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF)
Through the generosity of our donors and business partners, we are able to help maintain the educational experience we have come to expect in Claremont.
For over 30 years, CEF has worked hand-in-hand with Claremont Unified School District and the community to assist in providing all Claremont students the best education possible. We work to close the gap left in state funding and help protect school district priorities by granting, to every school, funds to support art, music, and technology programs as well as grants to educators for special initiatives, allowing for smaller, but impactful programs to happen.
