Great Schools Don't Just Happen!
Carpinteria Education Foundation (CEF) exists to:
Promote Excellence in Education
To Channel Private Sector Resources to Carpinteria Unified School District (CUSD)
To Inform and Involve the Community of the Needs of the School District
We are fortunate to be part of a supportive community that fosters a strong commitment to the schools and Carpinteria children. To protect and enhance the quality of life in our community, and to insure the value of our homes and property, we must continue to provide supplemental support for the educational and cultural enrichment opportunities for all students in the district.
Together, we can ensure our local children are on the cutting edge of technology, enriched by participating in the arts, have the opportunity to carry on Carpinteria’s rich agricultural economy, and compete in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) as they enter a workforce that continues to evolve.
