The mission of the Alhambra Educational Foundation (AEF) is to raise funds to support and enhance the educational programs of the Alhambra Unified School District (AUSD), benefiting all schools and all students. In addition, the Foundation provides the district, school sites, and all students with direct service by developing, sponsoring and implementing programs which enrich the curriculum and instructional program.
“Service to Education Awards Dinner Gala”
AEF recognizes individuals and community organizations who have contributed many hours of service or money to the education of children in our community. The Awards Dinner has annually been a sell-out, with funds raised through event and table sponsorships, silent and live auctions, raffles, advertisement, and event tickets.
“Mail Solicitation of Donations”
AEF solicits funds from the community through a mailing to businesses, school parents, school staff, retirees, and community organizations.
“Private Foundation Grants”
The Foundation submits financial grant request to numerous private foundations who support public education and community service.
Friends of the foundation can sigh-up for Amazon Smile, which provides a contribution to AEF every time a purchase is made from Amazon.
“Endowments and Trusts”
The Foundation encourages friends to consider AEF when planning endowments and trusts.
Many companies support AEF by matching the individual donations of their employees. We gratefully receive matching gifts from Apple, Southern California Edison, Bank of America/Merrill Lynch, Boeing, The Capital Group, Toyota, and many others.
Because of these fundraising activities and others, AEF has been able to donate over $300,000 annually to the district to support our enrichment programs.
