Fundraising & Events


Why We Raise Money

State funding of our school isn't enough. Donating to the CCLF directly funds academic and curriculum enrichment programs for a well rounded, high quality education for EVERY student, such as:

  • Classroom paraeducators
  • Librarian
  • STEM activities
  • Music instruction
  • Art instructor
  • 1:1 reading intervention instructional assistance
  • Reading specialist
  • Technology support

How We Raise Money

Each year, CCLF raises money through Parent-based, Student-based, and Community-based events. The following is a list of fundraisers planned for 2019-2020:


Registration is, by far, our largest fundraiser of the school year and our goal for 2019-2020 is to raise $255,000 at registration. In order to help achieve this goal, registration was held on-site at Coyote Creek Elementary School on August 6, 2019. See below for the suggested amount of donation per student. Click here to learn more on how money is spent and how much we have raised so far from registration.  

  TK & K 1st - 5th
Academic & Curriculum Enrichment Programs $650 $650
Classroom Supplies $115 $90
Suggested Donation Per Student $765 $740


We are hoping to reach 100% family participation. Join us in reaching our goal!

Corporate Match

Corporate Match has the potential to be our second largest fundraiser, and it is, quite possibly, one of the simplest. Last year, we raised ~$43,000 from corporate matching programs - help make 2019-20 an even better year!

This school year, we have designated two parents as our Directors of Corporate Matching to focus solely on boosting corporate matching income through promoting awareness, communication, and tracking.

Please visit our dedicated website on Corporate Matching and/or email if you have any questions or need assistance.
