Our Mission

The Santa Cruz Education Foundation is a community organization promoting excellence in Santa Cruz City Schools by developing and enhancing programs so that all students can achieve their full potential.

Although other area organizations raise funds for specific groups of students, the Santa Cruz Education Foundation is the only non-profit organization dedicated to serving all students in Santa Cruz City Schools.  We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, language, sex, gender, age, or disability.

We support all students in the Santa Cruz City Schools through a strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.

Ways to Give

There are several ways to make a tax-deductible donation to the Santa Cruz Education Foundation, including monetary donations through PayPal, in-kind donations, grants through Donor Advised Funds and more.

Eddy Awards

Every year we recognize excellence in public education - our teachers, parent volunteers, educational programs, individual schools and unsung heroes. In addition, the Roseann Coonerty Layne Inspiring Teaching Award recognizes 7th through 12th grade teachers who teach writing, history, social studies, government, civics or any other writing-intensive course.
