SCEF Fund Raising and Donations

Fund Raising

Funds are raised by the SCEF and distributed to schools in the form of scholarships and grants. Members of the community may contribute directly to the Foundation or through the annual United Way Campaign drive by designating their donation to Sacramento City Educational Foundation on the campaign form.

As a result of various fund raising efforts, the SCEF has awarded grants to SCUSD schools and teachers. The following programs are examples of the innovative projects supported by SCEF: Road To Success, Extending Reading is Fundamental; School, Community & Parents Against Violence; Cross-Age Peer Tutoring; Vocational Corner; Person to Person Project; Help Me Read; Parents as Partners in Science; After School Tutoring; Building Biliteracy Through Literature; Developing Student Leaders; Very Special Arts; Teen Active Parenting; Bringing the Middle to the Top.


When you give to the Sacramento City Educational Foundation your gift will be used to help Sacramento City students achieve academic success. Your tax deductible donation will be used to give students unique learning opportunities that they may not otherwise receive.

Your gift may be used to fund programs such as student scholarships, classroom grants, art, or music. Or, if you prefer, your donation can be set aside for future programs and endeavors.
