Our Foundation was recently surprised by Collins Community Credit Union with a generous grant award.

Third generation Cedar Falls grad Tom Blanford stopped by to make the presentation - his father Todd was a 1976 grad and his grandmother June Marcussen was a graduate in the '50s. Thank you Tom and CCCU, for your commitment to continuing the educational opportunities available to our students.

The award was presented to Andy Pattee, CFCS superintendent, Floyd Winter, Foundation past president, and Dave Deaver, Foundation president, by Tom Blanford, CCCU commercial banking manager, Steve Kimball, CCCU assistant branch manager, Amy Lang, CCCU small business lending manager and Emily Routier, CCCU member service consultant.

Thank you for your outstanding partnership and dedication to our students!


Thanks to the generosity of your gifts, we made 13 surprise classroom visits in November to award grants to 65 teachers!

Thank You For Your Gifts!

Our students are reaping the benefits from the extraordinary partnerships we have with our generous donors.

Our Foundation's goal is solely to provide support for our district, where all students can thrive and achieve academic excellence. All of our efforts are directed toward connecting our students with our communities, as we collectively support their learning experiences.

Thank you for helping us support these experiences, and our District teachers and staff, as they lead each and 'every student, every day'!


Hats Off to CAPS Supporters!

The Center for Advanced Professional Studies (CAPS) is expanding the professional business opportunities available to our students this fall, thanks to our donors' gifts. Without the generosity of the Waschek Family, Viking Pump, Far Reach, Hawkeye Community College, CFNEIA, UNI and the many gifts from individual donors, this collaborative program between our business community, our school districts and our students would not be possible.

Thank you!


Connecting Our Students

connect>CF, a partnership program between Cedar Falls Utilities and our schools, gives families that currently can't afford home internet service the opportunity to connect at a lower cost. Our generous donors, community service organizations and local businesses are helping eliminate the 'homework gap' many of our students face each day. Thank you to Dalton Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, Kryton Engineered Materials, Veridian Credit Union, Cedar Falls Walmart, Rotary Club of Cedar Falls, Viking Pump, Cedar Falls Lions Club, and our very generous individual donors for recognizing this need and making a difference!
