CFCS Foundation

Supporting our students ...

and assisting the Cedar Falls Community Schools in the creation of a distinctive educational environment

Thank You Cedar Falls Utilities

Cedar Falls Community Schools and Cedar Falls Utilities have partnered to make home internet more affordable for families in our community. If a student does not have internet service at home, it can be difficult for them to gather information to complete homework assignments, access course materials, or contact teachers outside of the school day.

Gifts to connect>CF, a collaboration between our schools, CFU, businesses and donors, provides discounted internet service for eligible families. To provide support for this program, click here and select 'connect>CF Program Support'. Thank you for helping to connect every student!
