WCEF is committed to making academic excellence and innovation a reality for every one of the 5,100 students it benefits. WCEF serves as a critical funding partner for our schools, ensuring your child receives access to a high quality, well-rounded education.
YOU MAKE GREAT SCHOOLS HAPPEN
California does not fully cover the services 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 we raise this year will pay for things the State does not provide for.
It’s hard to believe, but many school districts in California cannot offer art, music, P.E. and science specialists in their elementary schools. Middle schools don’t have the technology and services in place to prepare students for high school. High schools no longer have 7-period days which in turn, reduce access to electives, honors, and AP classes. Without parents like you and a supportive local community, Walnut Creek would be in the same situation.
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.
