What We Fund.

CEF is investing in Carbondale’s tomorrow by providing needs-assessed and impact-based support to our public education system today.

Our focus is on funding initiatives that can have the greatest impact for students, teachers and administrators at Crystal River Elementary School, Carbondale Middle School, Roaring Fork High School, Carbondale Community School, Ross Montessori School and Bridges High School.

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”

John Dewey
Our Mission

School-Based Health Center

Physical and mental well-being are prerequisites for learning. CEF seeks to raise $40,000 to help construct a new health center at Roaring Fork High School. Operated by Mountain Family Health, it will ensure any child or adolescent has year-round access to medical, dental and mental health services during and after school hours.

Programming Enrichment

We want our teachers and administrators to "think big" when it comes to enriching our children's education. As such, we fund grants that allow our educators to provide enhanced educational programming that otherwise wouldn't be possible due to lack of funds.
