What We Do

The Cedar Falls Schools Foundation supports the school district through:

  • Excellence Grants: expanding opportunities for students, specifically through the focus areas of Innovation, Unique/Memorable Experience, and Social Emotional Learning.

  • Senior Scholarships: created by individuals and families who chose to honor special people or interests by investing in the future of Cedar Falls Community School students.

  • District Initiatives:

    • CAPS: The Center for Advanced Professional Studies is a collaborative program through our schools, businesses, and the community, to develop highly skilled, adaptable, and innovated leaders. CAPS is a partnership with local businesses to put students in a skilled career environment and donor support through the Foundation has helped make that possible.

    • connect>CF: A collaborative initiative between Cedar Falls Schools and Cedar Falls Utilities, provides discounted internet service for low-income students and their families. By reducing their rate, these families are not left behind when it comes to all the internet provides, including school work, applying for jobs or staying connected. Internet is a necessity to thrive in today’s society.
