CEF is the Canyon Education Foundation

We raise funds toward the essential operating budget of the school.

Budget cuts by the state mean that the school cannot operate as it currently does on state funding alone.

In previous years, CEF has provided 10% to 20% of the school’s annual budget.

(CATSS is our sister organization responsible for enrichment programs and activities – those things beyond general operation of the school. Visit CATSS.
