Staff Information

Helpful Information for Staff Email or Staff Meetings:

  • Cash for Classrooms:  Otherwise known as C4C, this annual, districtwide campaign held by Chandler Education Foundation, focuses on raising money to support excellence in education.  Our ability to distribute funds is proportionate to our ability to raise them.  
    • Share with your students WHY this fundraiser is important and consider sharing about a grant a teacher at your site previously received. If they aren't excited about what we're raising money for, they aren't going to share the info at home.
    • Ask for small donations - we're not trying to be greedy, a little bit adds up quickly
    • Please share both the donation webpage: ChandlerCashForClassrooms.org and the Text to Give information (see image info below)
    • Staff giving shows you believe in the cause. Be sure to send your envelope back!  Every $25 donated equals a raffle entry for great gift cards!
      • Payroll deduction on iVisions is an easy way to spread out your donation throughout the year.  Once you contribute on iVisions, complete the envelope and send it in.  No proof needed, CEF will receive verification from Payroll.  Other ways to give include Cash or Check, Text to Give - text CEF to (480) 712-4081 or by contributing online at ChandlerCashForClassroooms.org.  
      • ****iVisions will be ready to go by August 5th.

Applying for C4C Enrichment Grants

Teachers and schools may apply for grants to cover expenses for classroom or school enrichment.  Grants may include (but aren't limited to) field trip expenses, technology, literature, guest presentations or experiences, additional curricula or supplies not typically covered by the district.

Applications are available on the CUSD website linked here at CEF Enrichment Grant Application or under the What We Do, Support Teachers & Schools section of the CEF website at ChandlerEdFoundation.org

Volunteer panels review each grant proposal.  Here are some helpful hints:

  • Be concise, answer each question as asked and make it easy for a non-educator to see the question asked has been adequately answered.
  • Don't submit an old copy of a grant - grants that are identical year after year are less likely to be approved.
  • If more than one teacher is applying for the same materials, either write the grant together or submit unique applications and narratives.  Please do not copy materials.
  • Articulate the scope of your impact.  The larger the impact the better!
