Redwood City Education Foundation helps give kids the education to succeed in high school, college, work, and life

You probably know about the Redwood City Education Foundation (RCEF) – it’s a wonderful nonprofit, all-volunteer organization that has been working since 1983 to help provide the public elementary and middle school students of Redwood City with the education they need to succeed in high school, college, work, and life.

Here is the latest information on RCEF’s upcoming events and ways to support our schools – I thought you might be interested! Please read below and consider how you can help our schools.

Thanks,

Proceeds from Parade Run support RCEF funding of music in our Redwood City schools. Partners include the Redwood City Department of Parks, Recreation & Community Services and the DIPs Run Club.

PAY IT FORWARD
A generous family of a graduating 8th grader invites other families to join them in making a legacy gift to the RCEF. This family is contributing $6,000, an amount equal to $500 for each year they, as a family, were part of our school district.

In their words, “…we don’t think it is fair that the children following our children will have fewer opportunities for the things that make life worth living. We have decided to Pay it Forward as much as we can. Let’s make sure that ALL children get the best education possible, after ALL children are EVERYONE’S future!”

You can join the Pay It Forward campaign by sending your check to: RCEF, PO Box 3046, Redwood City, 94064, or by clicking here. Be sure to note you are Paying it Forward – and we offer a big “thank you” to everyone who contributes to this unique and thoughtful gift to our students.

“GIVE AS YOU SHOP” MERCHANTS
These merchants give us an automatic donation when you make a purchase.

Go to www.rcef.org/shop.html for links to shop at Amazon.com, Kepler’s Books, and iTunes while you help RCEF.

Also, shop in person at: Kepler’s Books and be sure to mention the RCEF. Bring your reusable shopping bags to Key Market.

New to our program is Yang Orthodontics. This practice donates $150 to the RCEF for each new patient who mentions us when they set up a new patient exam and starts treatment.
