Fan the Flame - What's happening around the Foundation

Summer's Here and the Fire is Hot!

If you want to be in the know about what’s going on at Chandler Education Foundation, you’ve come to the right place. We know choosing a non-profit to donate money to comes with a variety of questions and concerns. We believe transparency and communication are some of the most important aspects of feeling confident you are giving your money wisely.

These past few months have been busy around CEF!

May was filled with celebration. Almost 1,000 people joined us at The Ashley Castle for our Recognition Reception. Have you been there? It's like a jewel on Price Road. Board members from Chandler Unified School District and Chandler Education Foundation joined many of our generous scholarship donors in recognition of students with  outstanding achievements and dedication to excellence. Over $100,000 in scholarships were awarded during a night filled with happy families and true celebration.

In June, Destination College welcomed 150 students from six of our Chandler Unified School District elementary schools. These soon-to-be Sixth Graders were thrilled with the chance to spend three weeks of their summer attending classes at Chandler Gilbert Community College.  Destination College is an experience that shows students who typically might not consider college, that the world is open to possibility.  We were grateful for the time and support given by countless organizations including Si Se Puede , Matthews Crossing, and Northrop Grumman.

July has kicked off our new fiscal year, not to mention a tremendous excitement for the upcoming school year. We have just rolled out our new website which will allow us to be a one-stop-shop.  We hope you are easily able to connect with us in a variety of ways. It will now cost less to donate online and we will be able to stay connected with our generous community through online forms, newsletters and email messages. You will be able to see the real-time status of our fundraisers and purchase raffle tickets or donate to Cash for Classrooms from the comfort of your own poolside chair (or wherever else you read your email)!  We look forward to meeting new CUSD teachers mid-month.
