Invest in Students

Chandler Education Foundation Investment in CUSD Students

Student at graduation

Welcome to the Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) – where our unwavering mission centers on investing in students.

At CEF, we wholeheartedly believe that nurturing our students today ensures a prosperous tomorrow. Through our initiatives, we aim to champion student growth by bolstering classroom resources, broadening their horizons, and fueling the flames of lifelong learning.

Join us as we lay the foundation for a brighter, more promising future, one student at a time.

Classroom Enrichment Grants

We are dedicated to propelling education forward by providing grants that elevate classroom experiences to unprecedented heights. Made possible by donations through our Cash For Classrooms campaign, CEF grants spark innovation, creating lessons that not only leave a lasting impression but also ignite a deep passion for learning within students. 

During the 2022-2023 academic year, the Foundation funded $85,000 in grants that directly impacted CUSD students.

IMPACT Chandler Scholars Program

IMPACT Chandler Scholars are dedicated, hard-working Chandler Unified School District high school students. The CEF Impact Scholars program recognizes CUSD students who have committed to high academic achievement, exemplary attendance, and to giving back at least 100 hours of community service.

During the 2022-2023 academic year, there were 145 IMPACT scholars who graduated from CUSD high schools. As part of the IMPACT program, more than 21,000 volunteer hours were put to work in our local Chandler community. 

Student Scholarships

Scholarships represent a cornerstone of the Foundation's initiatives. Within our annual CEF giving, we proudly facilitate both IMPACT Chandler Scholarships and Donor sponsored Scholarships.

These scholarships symbolize our unwavering commitment to fostering lifelong learning. We believe that nurturing our alumni's educational journey is integral to their continued success and personal growth. It's our way of investing in their future, ensuring they have the tools and support needed to advance their education and achieve their aspirations.

In the 2022 - 2023 academic year, the Foundation awarded $172,000 in IMPACT Chandler and Donor scholarships.

CUSD is fortunate to have the support of the Chandler Education Foundation, its Board of Directors, and generous Donors. These scholarships underscore the remarkable achievements of our graduates and offer significant support to our families.” - Frank Narducci,  Superintendent of the Chandler Unified School District
