CEEF is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation founded in 1984. Led by a volunteer board of community leaders, our mission is to raise and leverage private support to provide stable, sustainable funding that ensures ongoing excellence and enriches the educational program for all students in the Cupertino Union School District. We help CUSD continue to set the standard of quality for public education by supplementing public funds with private philanthropy. Over the last 35 years, CEEF has funded enhancement programs including classroom music, arts, math and technology; bolstered classroom excellence by supporting innovative professional development for teachers; and partnered with parents and the community to protect teachers’ jobs and sustain great education in CUSD.
