well-funded schools create well-rounded students
Each year our schools, and your child, rely on donations to WCEF to cover the cost of the education they receive. Why? Because California does not fully cover the cost of the education our schools deliver. In fact, per student funding ranks 41st in the nation. On average, your child receives $3,500 less than the national average. WCFE exists because frankly that's not good enough. The $1.25 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
WCEF’s suggested donation is $600 per child, or $50 a month for 12 months. If your family cannot meet the $600 per student ask, please consider making a contribution that works with your family’s budget. Every gift helps deliver a dynamic and innovative educational experience for your child and the other 5,100 students in our community.
