What We Do

Over time, schools have budget fluctuations that can lead to reductions in the quality of education for the children they serve. The goal of the T.E.A.Ch. Foundation is to help teachers provide classroom and after-school experiences that students, otherwise, would not have. The Foundation accomplishes this two ways: 1) a permanent endowment that will continue to grow and provide an enduring income to benefit the children of the San Luis Coastal Unified School District and 2) a pass-through non-endowed fund that allows monies to directly provide programs and services. This fund helps provide stability during market fluctuations and allows donors to give directly to specific subject areas and projects.

Grants from the T.E.A.Ch. Foundation are distributed semi-annually to employees of the SLCUSD through a formal grant application process. To be a grant recipient, applicants must demonstrate that the funds will be used to develop and strengthen opportunities for students, helping them to realize their full intellectual, physical, creative, emotional and social potential.

The T.E.A.Ch. Foundation grants are available to all schools throughout the district and at all grade levels. They are awarded in the areas of:

  • Reading, Language Arts & Literacy
  • Math & Science
  • Music, Drama & the Arts
  • Social Science
  • Student Health Services
  • Physical Education
  • Youth Activities & Community Service

T.E.A.Ch. Foundation does NOT compete with existing PTAs and high school booster clubs in their fund-raising activities. The board recognizes that parents already support their children's schools through many PTA and Booster fund-raisers each year. Consequently, the T.E.A.Ch. Foundation seeks to raise funds through avenues not currently used by PTAs and Booster Clubs. These include:

  • Bequests
  • Cash donations
  • Charitable Trusts
  • Insurance Policies
  • Real Estate
  • Securities
  • Business donations
  • Corporate donations
