YOU MAKE GREAT SCHOOLS HAPPEN
California does not fully cover the cost of the education our schools deliver. In 2018-19, our schools will receive an average of $7,861 per student in state and federal funding which is well below the national average of $11,934. Local property taxes only contribute an additional $333 per student. The $1.2 million donated to WCEF this year will help pay for critical salaries and programs not provided by the State or your property taxes.
Invest in Your Child’s Education for $50/month
This year, WCEF’s suggested donation is $600 per child. If your family cannot meet the $600 per student ask, please consider making a contribution that works with your family’s budget. Every gift, from $25 to $100, $250 to $5,000, helps deliver a dynamic and innovative educational experience for your child and the other 5,100 students in our community.
