Founded in 1983, The Ed. Fund (West Contra Costa Public Education Fund) is dedicated to inspiring student achievement, encouraging commitment to lifelong learning, honoring and supporting teachers, and building community partnerships committed to public education in West County public schools.
The Ed Fund invests in our schools through grants made directly to public school teachers; arts and music programs; college scholarships for high school seniors; after school programming; and teacher awards that recognize excellence. The Ed. Fund is also a community partner to and acts as fiscal sponsor for several agencies serving students in West County public schools. Over the past 25 years, The Ed. Fund has helped West County public schools by:
Awarding over $2,000,000 in grants and programs directly to schools
Giving nearly $400,000 in college scholarships
Providing resources to over 5,000 educators
Serving as the non-profit umbrella for over 50 education-focused community groups To learn more about our programs, click here.

With generous support from various private donors and foundations, The Ed. Fund provides scholarship funds to high school seniors in West County with financial need. We believe everyone deserves the chance to go to college. After six years and nearly $400,000 worth of college scholarships, we are confident this is a worthwhile investment in the future of West County.
