We focus on two fundraising levels at SCCLC:
The School Level - Site Level Fundraising
We have both a long-term development plan as well as a short-term comprehensive fundraising effort. The longer term approach involves developing contacts and funding sources to help us accomplish our vision through innovative and cutting edge educational practices. Additionally, we work to support special programs, equipment, and professional development through grant monies. There are ongoing efforts to identify granting agencies that match our programmatic needs.
The goal of our annual school-wide fundraising efforts is to raise the necessary funds to cover the quickly rising costs of educating all of our learners (as required by the state and federal government) while also addressing the immediate needs within our own educational program. We have a combination of both on-site community building events as well as school-wide fundraisers which are predominantly web-based ventures.

The District Level - SCEF
The San Carlos Educational Foundation (SCEF) supports well-rounded, high quality public education for our children. They are a volunteer-led, non-profit organization that promotes educational excellence by raising funds to bridge the gap between district needs and state funding.SCEF represents all seven schools in the San Carlos School District. The SCEF's primary goal is to raise funds on a community-wide basis. SCCLC benefits when you donate directly to SCEF and participate in the district-wide fundraiser, called Spring Fling. A precentage of the money raised by the SCEF and Spring Fling goes into CLC's general operating budget and is used to support salaries and programs that are targeted each year by SCEF. SCEF tries to allow for school flexibility and choice with respect to how these funds are spent.
