About CEF

For over 27 years, the Claremont Educational Foundation (CEF) has raised money to protect and enrich quality public education in Claremont through community involvement. We are grateful to our Business Partners who have helped us support each and every school in the Claremont Unified School District (CUSD). Since CEF provides an equitable disbursement of funds across district schools, all students benefit from enhanced access to art, music, and technology. With support from over 40 businesses and local professionals who contributed over $100,000 in cash and in-kind donations throughout the 2018-2019 academic year, we have demonstrated that we are all in this together!

Through a variety of fundraising efforts and relationships in the community, CEF has been able to help provide art and music instruction in the elementary schools and fund technology in the middle and high schools.

It is through the generosity of our donors that CEF is able to maintain the educational experience we have come to expect in Claremont.

CEF’s Board of Directors is composed of business and community leaders, parents and district staff who together carry out our mission “To protect and enrich quality public education in Claremont.”  CEF is a member of the California Consortium of Education Foundations.
