EDUCATION FOUNDATION FOR CALIFORNIA SCHOOLS

The Education Foundation for California Schools is a non-profit organization created by SchoolsFirst FCU and the Orange County Department of Education to support core education programs in California schools. The Foundation's primary purpose is to provide financial assistance to teachers in California public and private schools through grants that help fund innovative programs designed to encourage students to learn and excel in core subjects.

Every year, several grants are awarded to California teachers from kindergarten to community college. Applications are chosen based on various factors and grants can be used for materials or equipment to support the development of new, innovative programs in core subjects.

Applications are accepted from October 1-31, 2021 for the 2021–2022 school year.

It's Your Contributions That Make it Possible

Over the years, more than 540 teachers have received grants totaling more than $1 million dollars—directly impacting more than 50,000 students. It is your generous contributions that make this Foundation possible. Donations as little as $1 per month may not seem like much, but can help make a huge difference in our classrooms.
