Families

SCEF relies on the community’s generosity to achieve our $2.5 million fundraising goal. These funds help bridge the gap between state funding providing high quality, well rounded public education for TK-8th grade San Carlos students. Partnering with families, businesses, foundations, and non-profits, we are able to offer programs and support that would otherwise be eliminated from our student’s world of learning.

DONATE

Your gift to SCEF supports teachers, librarians, counselors and other educators who would otherwise be eliminated from our students’ world of learning due to reduced state funding. From transitional kindergarten through eighth grade, SCEF gives every child every chance to excel with a robust curriculum beyond what public funding would provide. Donate
