Our History

The Foundation for Central Schools was founded in 2004 by parents, staff and community members of Central Unified. The Foundation immediately went to work, by creating grants for classroom projects and teachers. Since its inception, the Foundation has grown to include a scholarship program, jacket & sweater distribution, clothing closets, food distribution and textbook grants. Additionally, the Foundation has provided monetary support to a number of district programs like, History day and Young Authorsโ€™ Faire. Plus, assistance for opportunities like students performing at Carnegie Hall. To date, nearly $1.5 million dollars has been raised to support the mission. Today, the Foundation actively advocates for community investment and partnerships to provide high-quality educational experiences for Central Unified.
