CFCS Foundation

Supporting our students ...

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


Would You Like To Honor An Educator?

Help us celebrate our teachers and school staff this month by sharing words of appreciation for current or retired Cedar Falls Schools teachers and staff. Recognize your favorite educator by emailing the Foundation a personal note or positive story about an educator that has impacted you or your child's life.

Would you like to thank or honor an educator and provide enrichment experiences for our students? Consider making a tax-deductible gift in the name of a special teacher, coach, mentor, or other staff person. We will share with the educator your thoughtful words and your generosity.

Honoring gifts can be made online here.


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, provide 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!
