Funding provided by SCEF supports every child, every day, in every classroom, at every school. Your contribution has a direct impact.
Our mission is to support a well-rounded education for San Carlos public school students. Unfortunately, state funding doesn’t not provide sufficient resources for schools to offer music, art, pe, library and other programs that we believe are essential for a quality education. That is why we work every year to raise funds from parents, businesses and the local community to help the district provide enriching programs for students.
