The Clarke County Education Foundation (CCEF), a non-profit organization with a current board of 13 members and a part-time executive director, is dedicated to providing private support to the Clarke County Public Schools to enhance its tax-supported programs.
Founded in 1991, the CCEF has provided more than $3.5 million in student scholarships, teacher grants, system demonstration grants, and donor-defined projects through a combination of fund-raising and endowment income since its inception.
The Clarke County Education Foundation is an independent public charity dedicated to promoting, expanding, and augmenting the educational opportunities for students and staff in the Clarke County Public Schools, by generating private support and involvement to enhance these publicly maintained services.
Supporting Our Schools
As a partner with various community groups, CCEF oversees charitable donations that augment programs such as International Baccalaureate, Advanced Placement, Bridge, VA Star Program, Dictionary Fund, and more.
Each year, CCEF provides financial funding to bring students’ dreams of post-graduate studies to reality. These funds are provided through the generosity of scholarship funds and endowments.
CCEF annually awards thousands of dollars to teachers to enhance the classroom experience. Aid has been in the form of supplemental materials, additional supplies, and state-of-the-art equipment.
The thing that really appeals to me and why I strongly support the Clarke County Education Foundation is it is a local, community based organization making such a positive difference in our local community. All the resources the Clarke County Education Foundation is entrusted with go right back in to supporting our Clarke County educators and to providing our Clarke County schools with additional tools to better educate our children.
