The California School Education Foundation (CSEF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing technology, arts and science programs to the students of California Elementary School.

Last year, through Community Donations and Special Events, we raised over $55,000 to fund supplies and instructor for our technology lab, as well as our Show Choir, School Musical and Band programs.

This year, our goal is to raise $60,000 to:  Continue to fund and staff our computer technology lab; provide students with Chromebooks; support arts education through our Show Choir, Musical and Band; and give back to the community through Show Choir performances.

We would like to personally invite you to consider getting involved with CSEF.  By volunteering your time, making a donation or simply attending one of our events, you help make a tremendous difference.

Please join us for CSEF meeting on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7pm.  Feel free to reach out to us with any questions or ideas or to make a donation at  Or "Like" our Facebook page to keep up with all our activities and events.

We hope to see you at one of our upcoming events:
