CEF Support in Action

Since our founding in 1991, CEF grants to Claremont Unified School District schools, educators, and community partners have totaled to over $3.7 million. So far, in the 2020-2021 school year, we have provided $165,415 in school site block grant funding, thanks to the generosity of our donor community. Each school year, these funds are equitably distributed to each school in CUSD, reaching every student in the district, in support of art and music at the elementary level and technology at the intermediate and high school levels. In addition, we will be providing additional funds to support our other annual grant programs: Teacher Innovation Grants for special projects lead by the district's educators and Community Partnership Grants to support after school enrichment programs provided by local organizations.

"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.”

About Us


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 almost 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.
