Who We Are

Mission & History

Our students have aspirations and dreams. Can we count on you to invest in them? With Coronado Unified funded in the lowest 7% of California school districts, simply due to the state funding formula, make an investment today to fuel exceptional learning opportunities that fuel passions for your child’s, grandchild’s or neighbor’s child’s educational experience.

Why CSF?

The Coronado School’s Foundation is a community driven fundraising organization, which supplements state funding for 2 pathways in the public schools of Coronado Unified School District: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) and Arts. Since its’ founding in 1982, CSF has provided a means for parents, community members and local businesses to invest in superior public education for their children in the Coronado Unified School District. Since that time, CSF has grown into a million-dollar commitment to maintain rigorous academics and a breadth of educational experiences from kindergarten through high school. Funds raised by CSF pay for teachers and other educators whose positions the state of California does not fund or require but our parents and educators consider necessary for a quality education.

Our Mission

Through community involvement and support, Coronado Schools Foundation raises and manages funds to provide exceptional learning experiences for all Coronado Unified School District students.

Our Vision

Coronado Schools Foundation envisions a public school community that provides students an opportunity to learn, thrive and reach their highest potential today and into their future.
