Chelsea Education Foundation (CEF) is leveraging today, GivingTuesday, to raise funds needed to support CEF Teacher Grants for the 2020-2021 school year.
GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement, which inspires people to give back to their communities on Dec. 1.
CEF’s mission is to enhance the Chelsea School District’s educational experiences by financing projects beyond the resources of the district and by providing scholarships to district graduates.
“We are here as a support system to help Chelsea School District students and staff reach their fullest potential,” said CEF President Lynn Fox. “CEF serves as a link between school, businesses and our community to help strengthen Chelsea’s future.”
With the help of generous donors, CEF is able to provide funding for a wide spectrum of educational activities to benefit the students and the staff of the Chelsea School District. Contributions to CEF are given back to the school district through innovative grants for students, teachers and administrators, and as scholarships to CHS graduates.
“In order to provide extra support to address the increased needs our schools are currently facing, we added 2 new grant cycles this year. Through the Giving Tuesday campaign, we are hoping to raise enough to help us fund additional grants in all 3 cycles,” said Fox.

- 45,000+ students have been impacted by CEF efforts and activities in the schools.
