Telethon: Day of Giving



Join us on March 14th as we raise funds to ensure our students have access to the classes they  love like art, music, science lab, robotics, coding and more. Not only do our students win big, but you can too!

It’s that time of year! Coronado Schools Foundation (CSF) is gearing up for an extraordinary day of generosity and impact with their CSF Day of Giving (aka CSF Telethon) on
Thursday, March 14th, 2024. This 24-hour re-imagined fundraising event aims to secure funding to ensure CUSD students have continued access to enriching classes including fine arts, performing arts, music, choir, coding, science labs, robotics, and more.

Throughout the 24 days leading up to the CSF Day of Giving, donors will have the opportunity to engage in giving challenges. Some of the incredible prizes up for grabs include:

-A luxurious two-night stay at the Coronado Marriott

-An indulgent spa day for four including lunch at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort

-A mystery package from the iconic Hotel del Coronado
-And a brand-new Electra Townie Go 8D EQ E-bike from Holland's worth $2,500, perfect for on-island commuting in the most stylish eco-friendly way.

You pick the prize you want and every $100 you donate is an entry to that prize. For example, $1,000 qualifies you for 10 entries to win the e-Bike! Donate early! Donations that come in before 03/13/2024 are counted twice as the entry for the prize you choose, for example $1,000 donation would equal 20 entries.

"Through the support of our community partners, business sponsors, and parent giving, our students will win big and so can you!" said Michelle Gilmore, CSF President & CEO. "The Day of Giving (aka CSF Telethon) is not only a chance to support our students and schools but also an opportunity for the community to come together and make a lasting impact.”

Join us on March 14th, 2024, and be a part of something truly remarkable. Together, we can ensure that every student has access to the classes they love and the opportunities they deserve. Plus get a sneak-peek into CSF-funded classes!
