Educational Grants for Atascadero Unified School District Teachers 

Our mission is to dedicate ourselves to providing grants to support educational programs for all Atascadero Public Schools through ongoing fund raising and donations.


We held the 9th annual CAPS event on Aug. 22, 2015 and it was a HUGE success!

With our Fabulous Sponsors and this Amazing Community and all our Generous Donors and Fun Attendees we were able to raise enough  to fund $65,000 in grants!

In the last 9 years, CAPS has been able to give $500,000 to AUSD teachers who have written grant applications!!!

THANK YOU FROM ALL OF US AT CAPS!!! What a great community we live in!!

 Great News!! CAPS is now affiliated with the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation!

Our new tax id is 77-0390865.
