WELCOME TO WCEF K-12
The Walnut Creek Education Foundation K-12 (WCEF) is a volunteer-led, non-profit organization. WCEF was established in 2005 as the result of a merger between the Walnut Creek Education Foundation and the Las Lomas Foundation. This was done in order to maximize fundraising efforts as both foundations had been successfully serving our community schools since 1988.
WCEF Mission Statement
The Walnut Creek Education Foundation raises funds to preserve and enhance the education of each student in the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School in the Acalanes Union High School District through a broad-based community effort.
Our annual budget is developed collaboratively with the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School in the Acalanes Union High School District through a yearly prioritization process and in accordance with our funding guidelines described below. WCEF steps in where state funding leaves off, preserving the world-class educational opportunities our kids deserve and need. Each school within the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School is represented on our Board of Directors and Executive Committee. More than ninety percent of the monies we raise go directly to the schools we serve.
WCEF is recognized and respected in the community as a highly effective fundraising organization that:
Funding of programs within the Walnut Creek School District and Las Lomas High School is a collaborative process between WCEF, the districts and the schools. The WCEF Budget Committee meets with leaders at the schools - and at the two school districts - to identify and prioritize funding needs. The WCEF board maintains responsibility for ensuring that funds are directed towards programs that advance the Foundation's mission and may decline to fund those programs which do not meet these funding guidelines. Funding decisions are made on an annual basis for the following school year.
