"The generosity of our community enables us to support and grow alongside the Chelsea School District. This fundraiser is a vital component of our efforts to enhance educational opportunities for all students.”
Amy Forehand, CEF President

Donations to this fundraiser will help CEF fund future student scholarships and educator grants. In addition to awarding over $40,000 in scholarships to 2024 graduates, CEF has funded 49 grants totaling over $50,000 in the 2023-24 school year. While this is a significant impact for the schools, CEF received grant applications totaling $174,000 this past school year. With only being able to meet 29% of the request, CEF is asking supporters to help close the gap, which includes $60,000 toward repurposing Pierce Lake Elementary School into an early childhood center. "This reflects our district's proactive approach to meet the increasing demand for early childhood education in our community," shared Mike Kapolka, CSD Superintendent.
