Who We Are

Our Partners

Partners Of Purpose

At Chandler Education Foundation (CEF), we believe that strong partnerships are the cornerstone of a supportive and thriving educational community. Through collaboration with local businesses, community organizations, and dedicated individuals, CEF creates a robust network that enhances the quality of public education within Chandler Unified School District (CUSD). These vital partnerships empower us to provide scholarships, grants, and innovative programs, ensuring that every student has access to exceptional learning opportunities and the resources needed to succeed. Together, we are building a brighter future for our students and the entire community

Toyota Driving Possibilities

The Chandler Education Foundation is excited to partner with Toyota in the delivery of the five-year Driving Possibilities grant dedicated to preparing youth for future careers while addressing underlying factors that affect learning. This successful initiative aims to close educational gaps by offering innovative, hands-on STEM programs that align with career pathways and enhance student achievement. This includes comprehensive professional development for educators to bolster STEM instruction and student success. Through after-school and on-campus programs, Driving Possibilities promotes STEM awareness, ignites excitement, and cultivates interest among students, all while addressing the fundamental needs of students and their families. Together, we are fostering a community where every student has the opportunity to thrive in STEM and beyond.

Read On Chandler

The partnership between Read On Chandler and CEF is a powerful collaboration aimed at enriching our community. Read On Chandler was established to ensure children in Chandler’s most vulnerable neighborhoods enter Kindergarten equipped with essential foundational skills for academic success. Shockingly, statistics reveal that many incoming Kindergartners in specific Chandler zip codes lack these crucial skills, affecting nearly 10,000 children in these areas alone. This program plays a vital role in preparing a generation of children who are ready to excel in their educational journey and beyond.

Read On Chandler is an integral part of Read On Arizona, a collaborative effort involving public and private organizations dedicated to building early literacy systems statewide. The partnership underscores our commitment to empowering children with the literacy skills needed to thrive, supported by a network of dedicated stakeholders and community partners.

This vital partnership provides essential financial support to ensure that vulnerable youth in Chandler Unified School District have the resources and guidance needed to achieve academic success. The Destination Diploma program focuses on supporting at-risk students, equipping them with the tools and opportunities necessary to graduate and pursue their dreams. Together, we are fostering a brighter future for our community by investing in the education and well-being of our youth.
