What We Do

CSF has increased its total returned to the schools by 460% since June 2004.

Throughout the CSF fiscal year (July 1st to June 30th), funds are raised through donor annual giving campaigns, foundation grants, and two major benefit events: the fall Benefit Auction and spring Telethon.

During the school year, funds are returned for specific projects, annual fund-a-need at the Benefit Auction, private donor scholarships for graduating seniors, and designated donations. At the end of the school/fiscal year, the balance is divided equitably among the school sites through SIte Program Grants.

Since the Foundation was incorporated in 1982, over $9.6 million dollars have been returned. Since the Local Control Funding formula was enacted by the California State legistlature, in 2013, Coronado Unified School District now receives $1,900 less per child than San Diego Unified. This is simply due to our demographics. CSF’s donations to the schools have increased by more than 460% over the last decade, thanks to the generosity of donors. 

2017-18 Program Funding - Great Schools. Great Kids.

Each year, the CSF Board of Directors provides Program Funding Guidelines to Coronado Unified for each campus’ leadership team to follow each spring when developing their site’s Program Funding Grant Request for approval by the CUSD Director of Learning and District Technology Resource Teacher. Once approved, these proposals are submitted to the CSF Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors for review and a formal presentation is made to the Board.  

For the 2017-18 school year, CSF returned $757,000 to our public schools as follows*:
