The Carlsbad Educational Foundation: Supporting Carlsbad Students for 30 Years



The Carlsbad Educational Foundation (CEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides private support for public education programs throughout the Carlsbad Unified School District.


Since its founding in 1983, CEF has invested nearly $5 million in programs for CUSD students.


CEF is the only organization in Carlsbad charged with raising district-wide support for every school and student in our elementary, middle and high schools.


CEF’s impact on CUSD students and our community is unmistakable...


  • Every day, thousands of students are participating in CEF-funded programs.
  • Every week, individual, corporate and foundation contributors are supporting CEF’s mission.
  • Every month, CEF is engaged in activities at our schools and events throughout the community to raise support for vital programs.
  • And every year, CEF continues to grow with new and expanded educational programs that impact and empower local students.
