Escondido Education Foundation's mission is to raise funds to support innovative learning in Escondido's public K-8th grade schools.
THANK YOU, everyone, for your participation in the Foundation's first 50/50 Together Campaign!! We exceed our ambitious goal of $50,000 for year one! This year, familes and staff throughout the district contributed to this campaign, and the results are impressive. Next year will be even better.

The Dr. Mike Caston Innovation Awards
As of spring 2013, EEF renamed this program in honor of our organizational founder, Dr. Mike Caston! Dr. Caston was ahead of his time with the idea of new kinds of community support for EUSD, and we congratulate him on his exciting vision!
The Escondido Education Foundation's cause for the 50/50 Together Campaign was our Innovation Awards, which are available to all 23 EUSD schools. 22 schools have received a grant since we started the program. EEF has identified the goal of making more large grants available each year until we can offer the opportunity of $5,000 to each school. The 50/50 Together Campaign is a big step towards that goal!
The Dr. Mike Caston Innovation Awards are exciting for everyone involved - students, teachers and donors. Every dollar goes directly to support the purchase of supplies to be used in the classroom to create creative learning experiences for students that engage them in 21st Century skills and knowledge.
The Innovation Awards enable all of us to raise the bar together, giving students and teachers the tools they need to strive and excel. Teachers apply in the fall, hear the results before the holidays and carry out their projects in the spring semester.
