Classroom of young children

Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) began in 1986 to provide community support for excellence in education for the Chandler Unified School District (CUSD).

Our Purpose:

To invest community support into educational opportunities, paving the way to lifelong success for CUSD students.

Our Vision:

To utilize private investment in public education to maximize growth as students become engaged members of a global community. 

Our Priorities:

- Support CUSD in the development of outstanding K-12 students. 

- Promote lifelong learning for CUSD students and staff to meet the changing needs of our community and economy. 

- Direct resources to enhance organizational practices to sustain a safe and healthy learning environment. 

- Manage resources effectively, equitably, and sustainably. 

We want our children to become not only excellent students, but also excellent members of our community, ready to assist and support the next generation.  With your help, we can fund innovative programs and experiences, support students and staff, and encourage an investment in our community.
