​The charter of Education for the Children is to grant funds directly into the classrooms of the Tesoro Family of Schools:


Each year, Education for the Children awards funds to the Tesoro family schools through the form of Teacher Grants utilizing monies raised through our two annual signature events, our Fall Event and our Spring Event along with our very successful Friends of EFC capital campaign.

Teachers complete a grant application explaining what, why, how and by whom items will be used in the classroom.  With the help of our school principals each and every grant is assessed for its effectiveness, dollar amount, and quality of impact on the school environment.  We would love to fund every grant, unfortunately we cannot honor them all with our limited funds.

​The more support we have, however, the closer we can get to funding 100% of our classroom requests.Since EFC’s inception in August 1998, over $1,650,000 has been awarded in teacher grants. The foundation supplements innovative teaching approaches by financing additional projects and tools that enhance the educational experience and provide a more enriched learning environment. 

​​The continuing expanse in technology, the ever-changing tools required to teach at fullest capacity, and the resolution to fulfill the art and music program’s needs necessitates the foundation’s continued success.
