Chelsea Education Foundation (CEF) is kicking off its first annual “Grad Year Campaign” to raise $10,000. The campaign begins on May 2 and closes on June 5 – Graduation Day.
The 2022 Grad Year Campaign celebrates the Class of ’22 and all the Chelsea School District grade-level graduates. It allows families and friends the opportunity to recognize not only this year’s graduating class but also future Bulldog graduates. A suggested donation of $22 celebrates each of this year’s graduates and will be used to fund educator grants and student scholarships.

During the 2021-2022 school year, CEF funded over $39,000 in grants that helped support the creative endeavors of the Chelsea School District educators. These grants funded building early literacy libraries and Safety Town improvements at the elementary schools; the 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip, WEB leadership, art, drama, and tech projects at the middle school; and LINK Crew and Independence Hall initiatives at Chelsea High School. At Class Night, CEF will award 16 student scholarships valued at $38,000!
Lynn Fox, president of CEF, shares, “The pandemic has made our annual gala impossible to hold, and innovative campaigns like the “Grad Year Campaign” have become critical to our ability to support the Chelsea School District."
Nick Angel, Chelsea High School principal, said, “CEF has provided decades of support for our staff and students. From mini-grants for staff to pursue field trips, student scholarships to attend post-secondary options, and scholarships for students to attend annual traditions like the Washington D.C. trip, the Chelsea Education Foundation has been a partner and great supporter of education here in Chelsea. We are fortunate to have strong community support – CEF is our chief cheerleader. We are very thankful.”
