Thank you for your support of CEF's mission to enhance the Chelsea School District's educational experiences by financing projects beyond the resources of the District and by providing scholarships to District graduates.
Dear Chelsea Community Partner,
As a sponsor of Chelsea Education Foundation, I want to thank you for your generous support! CEF continues to be an important resource to graduating students, recent graduates and educational enhancement for every child from grades Pre-K thru 12. Normally, a CEF Board member would deliver this in person, but we are cognizant of safety during the pandemic.
CEF is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization supported by contributions from individuals, businesses and other local non-profits. The Board is composed of community volunteers who are committed to innovation in education within the Chelsea School District.
With the restrictions on public gatherings since March 2020, CEF had to cancel our annual fundraiser and has been looking for ways to engage the entire community in support for the students and teachers of the Chelsea School District. This year we are introducing the opportunity for an annual sponsorship and have enclosed an application.
Our recent Giving Tuesday event raised over $5000.00. This money went directly to support the second of three teacher grant cycles in the current fiscal year. Because of the fluidity of the pandemic, we decided to change from one grant cycle in October to have two additional grant cycles; one in January and another coming up in April. This allowed teachers to receive grant funding as the school district moved from virtual to hybrid to full-time, where possible. It gave them opportunities to fund different avenues of learning as the school situation changed.
Enclosed with this letter is the September 2019 - August 2020 Impact Statement from Chelsea Education Foundation. As a supporter of this organization, we want to extend to you our deepest gratitude and thanks. We hope you value our commitment to the entire student body and will continue to support CEF.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or comments. We all look forward to seeing each other soon.
With warmest regards,
Lynn A Fox
Chelsea Education Foundation
