CEF Needs Your Support to Shape Tomorrow’s Leaders

(Chelsea Update would like to thank D&B Strategic Marketing for the information in this story.)

Chelsea Education Foundation is in the midst of its “Building a Bulldog Future Fundraiser.”

This fundraiser celebrates the achievements of Chelsea’s Class of 2024 and enhances educational endeavors across the district. It’s about you, our community, coming together to empower future Bulldog graduates and make a lasting impact on their lives.

Donations help to:

  • Empower Future Generations: Providing scholarships and financial aid to students who may otherwise be unable to afford educational opportunities.
  • Enhanced Experiences: Contributions help to upgrade school facilities, creating a conducive learning environment that meets modern educational standards (examples: Art display panels for Art Shows at the High School, South Meadows Media Center flexible seating, tables and checkout station, and playground equipment for the planned repurposing of Pierce Lake Elementary).
  • Expanding Programs: Funds raised allow CEF to respond to the growing number of Educator requests. This recent grant season, CEF funded $50,000 in grants, leaving a shortfall of $120,000 in grant fund requests.

Reflecting on the 2022-2023 school year and the direct impact of our community’s generosity: 

  • $47,100 was awarded to Chelsea Students through scholarships, relieving financial burdens and fostering academic excellence. CEF is a conduit bringing together community members, organizations, and businesses to sponsor these scholarships.
  • $47,884 funded grants that helped support the creative endeavors of the Chelsea School District Educators.
