Castaic Education Foundation

HELPING STUDENTS, ONE EDUCATOR AT A TIME 

As our slogan suggests, the Castaic Education Foundation exists to help educators provide the most thorough and innovative education to students enrolled in the Castaic Union School District. We provide grants to educators who have great ideas but lack the financial resources to implement them. We welcome your support and strongly encourage your participation in upcoming community and fundraising events.  

 

 

WHAT WE'VE DONE

We're proud of our accomplishments on behalf of the students and teachers in the Castaic Union School District.

Since 2007, we have awarded approximately $200,000.00 to our teachers for technology, flexible seating, outdoor play equipment for preschool, interactive classroom tools, items to support Career Education at our middle school and much more.

 

 A large part of our mission is ensuring our schools have access to the latest technology, giving our students the competitive edge they need for academic success now and in the future. The Foundation has achieved its goal of providing a computer lab at each of our elementary schools. In addition, we have provided funds for 3-D printers, virtual reality software, musical instruments, and items in support of social programs. This investment is in direct response to our educators who recognize needs and articulate them in the form of grant requests.
