Community Partnership Grants
Become a Community Educational Partner!
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.

Teacher Innovation Grants
Teachers! Kickstart Your Innovative Ideas Here!
CEF believes in supporting CUSD’s top-notch educational staff and nurturing a space where innovative ideas can develop and flourish. In this spirit, CEF is excited to fund small grants for creative projects that engage students in high-impact learning opportunities. Teachers and principals in CUSD are eligible to apply. The focus of these grants is enhancing access to creative, project-based learning for CUSD students. Projects may align with CEF’s traditional areas of focus (art, music, and technology) or explore other subject areas (humanities, sciences, etc). Teachers may apply individually; groups of teachers may submit a proposal together for a collaborative school-site or grade-level project, or principals may submit a proposal for a school-wide project. Partnerships with community groups on projects that hold promise for enhancing learning in CUSD are welcome. (Application below.
