History of The Foundation

The Alhambra School District Foundation was incorporated as a non-profit organization in September 1993. The name of the foundation was changed to the Alhambra Educational Foundation in 2004. The purpose of the Foundation is to raise funds to augment the instructional programs for children of the Alhambra Unified School District. The Foundation is governed by a board of directors consisting of volunteer members from the community.

Since 1993, the Foundation has given more than $1.8 million in generous donations to the District, which has been used to fund K-3 instructional music, hire additional college/career counselors, purchase musical instruments and supplies, computers, internet access, Automated External Defibrillators for each site, reading incentives for high school students, library and classroom books, disaster preparedness equipment and materials, uniforms and instruments for the All District Band, and more. In addition, the Foundation organizes and funds the Reading is Fundamental (RIF), which provides books to every TK – 2nd grade student in the district three times per year at ALL 13 elementary campuses.

Past programs sponsored by AEF included Teacher MIni-Grants, and the Student Leadership Seminars, which brought together elected officers of all of our schools for training and exchanging ideas to improve our schools and communities, as well as the semi-annual Author’s Festival.

Over the past 21 years, we have had the pleasure of working with many volunteers, staff/teachers and community members who have helped us make a difference in the lives of AUSD students.  Thank You!
