Carlsbad Schools – Carlsbad Educational Foundation

Where Kids Are Worth a Million

This week in our Prudential California Realty office meeting, we had a spokesman from the Carlsbad Educational Foundation.  I was very impressed at the work they do in our community and wanted to share it with you. 

Since 1983, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation has been working hard as an independent non-profit organization with one mission-to raise private support for public school programs in the Carlsbad Unified School District.  In the upcoming school year, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation will be funding nearly half a million dollars towards student programs through the generous support of corporations, foundation grants, special events, and individuals like you!


Every dollar you give to the Carlsbad Educational Foundation goes to support local students! Our Kids’ Care and Enrichment Programs generate the revenue to cover our operating expenses so every donation can impact local students.

In addition to funding great programs across the school district, the Foundation operates the Kids’ Care childcare program at each elementary school. This high-quality, onsite, licensed childcare program ensures that working parents have a safe and affordable learning environment for their children throughout the year from 7 am to 6:25 pm.

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation also operates an annual Summer Enrichment Program each June and July—offering more than two dozen half-day enrichment programs designed specifically to inspire and teach students ages 5 to 14 in the areas of science, music, technology, and the arts.
