When communities work together to eliminate inequities, our youth will thrive. The West Contra Costa Public Education Fund mobilizes resources for our students and aligns the efforts of our partners to ensure that all students succeed.
Since its founding in 1983, the Ed Fund has been committed to ensuring all students in West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) acquire the skills and knowledge to succeed in the world. Over the years, the Ed Fund has provided $3M in teacher grants, $1.2M in student scholarships, and has been at the forefront of collective impact efforts such as the Out of School Time Collaborative and College Access Network. Collectively, we have been able to increase access to college financial aid and fill the gap in quality summer programming.
The Ed Fund mobilizes resources for K-12 students and aligns the efforts of our partners to ensure that all WCCUSD youth succeed in college, career, and life. We believe that when communities work together to eliminate inequities, our youth will thrive. As an intermediary, the Ed Fund accomplishes its missions through three priority areas:
Support District initiatives that disrupt systems of inequity
Support quality teachers and school-sites who are trying new strategies that embrace a learner-centered culture
Provide fiscal sponsorship to innovative programs that center the needs of students
