Our Mission

The Coyote Creek Learning Fund (CCLF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to help maintain and enhance the quality of education at Coyote Creek Elementary School through the collaboration of parents, educators, and the community.


Our Goal

We need your help to reach our goal. Every dollar we raise helps all students at Coyote Creek - including yours!

Letter from CCLF President - August 16, 2019

Dear Coyote Creek Families,

Welcome to the start of another great school year! I wanted to thank all the parents, teachers, and students who volunteered at Coyote 101 on August 5th and Onsite Registration & School Picture Day on August 6th. Both events – attended by over 500 students and their families - were successful and enjoyable because of your hard work and dedication!

As of today, over 800 students have registered to attend our amazing school, and while our enrollment numbers have decreased by more than 100 students, I’m pleased to inform you that we have raised just over $50,000 to help pay for Classroom Supplies with more than 75% of our families donating. We have also raised just over $190,000 towards our Registration goal of $255,000 to fund the Academic and Curriculum Enrichment Programs - including paraeducators (teaching assistants), STEAM, Art, Music, Library, and Technology – that our students deserve and that help make Coyote Creek an award-winning school. Approximately 54% of families have donated to this category. Although we have not reached our goal, I am hopeful that continued education, communication, transparency, and parent engagement will move us in the right direction.

If you have not yet had an opportunity to donate or if you would like to make an additional donation, it’s not too late. Please visit our school store.  Without your donations, our school will be underfunded, which puts the continuation of these programs at risk.

As you look through the pages of our new website, you will find everything you need to know about what CCLF does (including details on how much money we've raised and how those funds are being used), all the ways you can get involved, and the exciting events we have planned. I hope you will be inspired to join our cause and to contribute in whatever capacity you are able. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and check our website for updates and announcements.

Thank you,


Shail Rajan
President, CCLF
