What We Raise Money For

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


Registration is, by far, our largest fundraiser of the school year and our goal for 2019-2020 is to raise $255,000 at registration. To help achieve this goal, registration was held on-site at Coyote Creek Elementary School on August 6, 2019. 

*** Update 8/16/19 - As of today, over 800 students have registered with just over $190,000 raised towards our Registration goal of $255,000 to fund the Academic and Curriculum Enrichment Programs. Approximately 54% of families donated to this category.

Although we have not met this goal, we are 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 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. ***

See below for the suggested amount of donation per student.

  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, but many donations that were eligible were left unclaimed. 

Based on donations (AECP and classroom supplies) made during 2019-20 registration, ~$90,000 (~38% of donations) is eligible for matching! Please submit your match and do not let this additional funding slip away.

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 cclfmatchingfund@gmail.com if you have any questions or need assistance.

FUNdraising Events


CCLF will be holding three student-based fundraisers during the upcoming school year.

  • Fun(d) Run - September 18th, 2019 flyer

Our 13th Annual Fund(d) Run is a fun fitness activity for TK through 5th grade. All children will run laps on the Coyote Creek field and aim for their personal best distance. We hope you will join your child for a fun day on the field! Our goal is to create a community-building event for all! The children will also raise money from family and friends, which will go directly back to our school to benefit our students.

*** Update - the Fun(d) Run was an incredible success! Together, our Coyotes exceeded our goal by raising $34,000 to help fund enrichment programs at our school! Thank you to everyone that donated and volunteered for this event! ***

 

  • Read-a-Thon - December 9th - 13th, 2019

Details to come ...

 

  • Spell-a-Thon - February 3rd - 7th, 2020 spell

Spell-a-thon is where all Coyote Creek students will spell words from their weekly spelling activities. Children can get sponsors to make it more motivating. This is a great way to make spelling fun while also raising money for our school.


Spring Gala & Auction

CCLF's annual Spring Gala is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, April 18th, 2020. This event is not to be missed! The evening will include silent and live auctions, dinner and dancing. Stay tuned for more details.


Eat & Earn


Several times throughout the year, we host Eat & Earn events at a local restaurant where a portion of the proceeds are given back to our school. 

mendocino
