How to Help Local Schools During Covid-19

Our community of students, teachers and parents are facing unprecedent challenges due to the Covid-
19 pandemic, leading many Carlsbad residents to ask, “How can I help?”

The Carlsbad Educational Foundation has stepped up with its #MoveForwardTogether campaign to
provide childcare, special programs and other support for our local school district. But they need your help.

Established by a group of Carlsbad High School parents in 1983, the Carlsbad Educational Foundation
funds curriculum-based programs in music, STEAM, and educational innovation for every student in the
Carlsbad Unified School District.

The Foundation relies on your support to help students grow into passionate learners and reach their
fullest potential. This school year presents new challenges.

In response to the Covid-19 health and economic crisis, the Foundation is adapting its funding priorities
to include groceries for families facing financial hardship, individual school supplies for items that can no
longer be shared under current health guidelines, and child care to help parents get back to work.

Here are ways you can help:

1. Sign up for a one time or reoccurring donation at www.CarlsbadEd.org
2. Enroll your elementary-aged student in a Carlsbad Educational Foundation enrichment program
to learn STEAM concepts in a creative, fun way. Visit www.CarlsbadEd.org/Enrichment to
register.
3. Sign up your students for the Kids Care program held at every elementary school campus for
academic and social support. Enroll at www.CarlsbadEd.org/KidsCare

The Foundation’s tuition-based programs like Kids Care and enrichment classes help fund the
Foundation’s daily expenses, so every dollar you donate goes directly to science, technology, music
and other critical programs in our schools.

Join the Foundation’s #MoveForwardTogether campaign to support our local students during these
unprecedented times! Every dollar makes a difference.
