How We Work

Chandler Education Foundation Campaigns and Events

Community support is crucial for quality education as it not only fosters a sense of shared responsibility but also provides the necessary resources and encouragement needed to empower the next generation of learners.

The Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) works to harness spirit and generosity of the local community through engaging annual fundraising campaigns and mutually beneficial sponsorship packages that support access, innovation, and academic excellence across the Chandler Unified School District. 

Learn about our exciting campaigns below, become a CEF sponsor, or contact us today to learn more about how you can get involved! 

CEF Sponsors

A thriving educational environment requires not just community involvement but the active support of our corporate partners. Sponsorships play a critical role in empowering our students, enhancing school programs, and fostering innovative learning experiences. We are so grateful for the support of our sponsors which enables us to provide scholarships, fund essential resources, and support initiatives that drive academic excellence. By aligning with CEF, businesses invest in the future of our community, helping to create a robust educational foundation that benefits everyone.

Cash for Classrooms Campaign

Chandler Education Foundation’s Annual Cash for Classrooms Campaign runs for four weeks each August. Supported by community members, families, and even our amazing students, it provides valuable funding for innovative teacher resource grants that directly impact CUSD student learning, engagement, and outcomes.
