At its core, the Escondido Education Foundation is a dedicated, community-based fundraising organization. Our mission is to secure necessary funding for vital resources and groundbreaking programs that empower our exceptional teachers, inspire unparalleled learning, and promote innovative practices, thus fostering academic excellence throughout the Escondido Union School District.
We are firm believers in the transformative power of quality education, and are committed to ensuring that our students receive the best possible learning experiences, irrespective of their socio-economic backgrounds. We see it as our role to bridge any gaps in funding, so as to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed.
The Escondido Education Foundation was established in 2004, arising from the recognition of a growing need for community involvement to uphold and enhance the quality of education in the Escondido Union School District. Our foundation, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, has since dedicated itself to rallying community support and gathering funds for the district.
We implement a multifaceted fundraising approach which includes individual donations, an Escondido Union School District employee contribution program, the thrilling annual campaign “Fall In Love With Escondido Schools”, and various grants. These funds are judiciously allocated to the most effective and impactful programs within the Escondido Union School District.
Currently, we do not accept unsolicited requests for funding. However, we are a dynamic, collaborative organization, always open to new ideas, discussions and potential partnerships. If you have questions, suggestions, or if you know of programs that require support, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Our dedicated Board of Directors meets on a monthly basis, continually strategizing and making decisions in the best interest of our schools and community. If you’re passionate about education and would like to contribute to our cause by serving on the Board or volunteering, we encourage you to reach out to us. Let’s join hands in fostering an environment where every student can thrive.
