Walnut Creek Education Foundation Together We’re Stronger!

Our Mission

The Walnut Creek Education Foundation raises funds to preserve and enhance the education of students in the Walnut Creek School District and at Las Lomas High School through a broad-based community effort. Our annual budget is developed collaboratively with the schools we support through a yearly prioritization process and in accordance with our funding guidelines. WCEF steps in where state funding leaves off, preserving the world-class educational opportunities our kids need and deserve. Nearly ninety percent of the funds we raise go directly to the schools we serve.



From Our Community: Why I Donate to WCEF

I donate to WCEF because I believe that the educational programs funded by WCEF truly help our children to reach their full potential. Our young people will need to succeed in a global economy, and my contribution to WCEF supports the training and curriculum they’ll need in the future. More >>

I donate to WCEF because every dollar contributed directly supports every student in the Walnut Creek School District and at Las Lomas High School with programs that would otherwise be unavailable at current government funding levels. More >>

Indian Valley, Walnut Creek Intermediate & Las Lomas Parent

I donate to WCEF because it means I can actively contribute to my kids’ education—and to making the Walnut Creek School District an even more enriching, supportive and safe place to learn. More >>

Parkmead Parent

I donate to WCEF because I see it as part of my public school “tuition,” which helps ensure that essential programs like Art, Music, P.E. and Science Lab remain part of the curriculum. More >>
