​​Additionally, our capital campaign, Friends of EFC, provides a means for our supporters who are not able to attend our events but want to donate directly to our organization any time of year. This program is also a great opportunity to showcase a local business or show your family support within the school community and on our website. 

​​We successfully accomplish our mission by organizing and facilitating two major community fundraising events throughout the school year:

EFC Fall Family Event

and our annual

Spring Theme Dinner and Auction Event.

These events bring our community together and provide a fun-filled year of entertainment as we raise much needed resources for our students, their teachers and our school community.

Education for the Children (EFC) was founded in 1998 by a dedicated group of parents and

community leaders as a philanthropic organization of volunteers who raise money to

help bridge the gap between school funding and the actual cost of educating a child. Within the Capistrano Unified School District, the Tesoro Family of Schools includes Arroyo Vista K-8 School, Esencia K-8, Las Flores Elementary School, Las Flores Middle School, Tesoro High School, Tijeras Creek Elementary School and Wagon Wheel Elementary School. Local businesses and family donations are instrumental in all of our fundraising efforts, and to date, EFC has raised over $1.8 million to support our school community.

Our mission is to build a relationship between our local public schools and the community, raising money to supplement the educational resources of local schools.
