FROM TK THROUGH GRADUATION, YOUR DONATION MATTERS
In 1983, dedicated parents like you established the Walnut Creek Education Foundation to make up for a lack of state funding resulting from voter decisions in the 1970s and 1980s.
Today, parent volunteers continue to work to support the education your child receives in our Walnut Creek schools. Foundations like ours allow families to invest in your child's education with tax-deductible donations and, ultimately, invest in our community.
Good schools connect our community and produce the next generation
of thoughtful, engaged leaders.
California ranks well below the national average when it comes to per student public school funding.
Here in Walnut Creek, our 5,000 students receive even less than the California average due to how our schools are funded. That's why your donations to WCEF are critical to what programs are offered at our schools, from the first day through graduation.

What state funding provides and what our top-ranked schools offer are two very different scenarios. This graphic helps showcase how your donations, large and small, help transform Las Lomas High School.
