and we did it!
Over 300 community members gathered on March 10th at the Portland Embassy Suites to celebrate excellence at the CEF Auction Gala, raising $100,000 for CEF grants in Camas Schools! This is CEF's biggest fundraiser of the year, and supports grants that empowers students and teachers to innovate, extend and inspire.
The CEF Board thanks all the volunteers for making it happen and all the donors who generously showed their support.
CEF& CSD: THE MAJOR GRANT INITIATIVE
During our Special Appeal paddle raise, we raised $21,832 for this year’s major grant: “Making Connections.” This grant will help fund the Camas School District's new social-emotional wellness program to support students and families during the transitional times of their educational lives.
This initiative will build a peer-to-peer mentorship program, and through these mentorships, students will build connections, practice empathy and learn from each other as they grow. This program will also offer families presentations and educational resources to help understand and respond to the social-emotional needs of our children. This is an exciting new initiative for the District, and one the CEF is proud to support!
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
The money raised at the 2018 CEF Gala will support the over 6,000 students in our district because of your generous support.
