Community Partnership Grants
This program supports grants that enhance learning through community partnerships and targeted funding opportunities that extend CEF’s efforts in art, music, technology and other vital areas to bolster educational support services and enrich educational programming. The Foundation aims to fund proposals that develop and sustain valuable links with nonprofit organizations that share our commitment to support CUSD students and families. Proposals should be well-articulated with identifiable goals and a clear vision for collaborative education partnership(s) between nonprofit organizations and teachers, school sites, District sponsored programs, or the general Claremont community. The Request for Proposals will begin in Spring 2019.
2018 Community Partnership Grants
Claremont Heritage: Third Grade Local History Program ($2,000)
This program teaches 3rd grade history through a 3-component program: a) visits to each individual Claremont Unified 3rd grade classroom, b) a bus tour around Claremont with multiple stops, and c) an opportunity for students to create an art project representing what they have learned. This art is then on exhibit at the Ginger Elliott Exhibition Center at Garner House in the spring.
Claremont Museum of Art: ARTstART ($2,000)
ARTstART offers an ambitious schedule of once a month art‐making opportunities based on studentproduced lessons at each of the seven main elementary campuses. To expand upon its regular training and preparation of high school students this year, CMA proposes to add a new component targeted to middle school students to capitalize on El Roble students’ traffice patterns into the Village after school. Those students would now be able to participate in the AfterArts Program in the Village.

CLASP will expand its after school enrichment and recreation activities to include STEM activities for 150 students at each of the five CLASP school sites.
