How We Fundraise
CCEF last fundraiser was Father's Day June 18th 2017. CCEF raises funds to support LVCS's specialists and classroom technology four ways:​

Annual Fund (Dragon Fund) - Thanks to the generosity of parents, friends and other family members, this key Fall campaign raises 60% of CCEF's annual fundraising goal. Get your form here.

Matching Gifts
- Make your Dragon Fund donation count twice as much. See if your employer matches here.

BINGO - The CCEF BINGO Team runs Sunday BINGO at the Livermore Bingo Ranch and all profits directly support CCEF’s mission.

Other exciting events - Past additional fundraising events have included the LVCS Gala, salsa tasting, golf and more.

"Dyslexia isn't a mystery at LVCS. The teachers are 
​well-versed in incorporating current methodologies in their teaching. There's a natural partnership between the specialists and teachers. I know my son's learning needs are being met. It's a big reason why we are a dragon family."

Melissa, LVCS 2nd grade parent


What is CCEF's relationship with TVLC?
Tri Valley Learning Corporation (TVLC) is the charter management company overseeing our school. Until recently, CCEF made monthly donations to TVLC to support our specialists' salaries and classroom technology; it was believed that these funds were restricted and went towards the following year's budget.

Where is the CCEF money going to go this year?
Protecting our specialist program continues to be the number one priority for CCEF. These past few weeks, we have been exploring specialist funding options with the school administration and Lynn Lysko. Our goal is to find a solution that meets the needs on both sides.

The CCEF Town Hall presentation in the Resources section below will give you a good idea of our progress and how we plan to move forward.

Is CCEF still fundraising?
No. The school has since filed for chapter 7 and closed.

Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes! CCEF is a 501 (c) (3) organization and your donation is 100% tax deductible. Our tax ID is 20-1852481.
