Our Story

Redwood City Education Foundation (RCEF) was established in 1983 by concerned parents and
community members in response to legislation that drastically reduced critical revenue in the form of
property taxes that funded local schools. As a result, RCEF established itself as a voice for the
community focused on providing financial support, targeted advocacy, and meaningful engagement
to address inequities and help all students thrive. This philosophy is still strong today, and in the rapidly-changing landscape of the Redwood City School District (RCSD), the Foundation recognized
the need to reemphasize its roots in the community while also preparing the organization to be in the
vanguard of mitigating the educational disparities experienced by local, low-income students.

Board of Directors

We believe all children can discover their passion, define their future, and change the world.

Our Demographics

RCEF partners with the Redwood City School District (RCSD) and works closely with Hoover, Garfield, and Taft to close the gap between the district's resources and the trust cost of educating our students.

We achieve this by raising funds for programs that support our students, classrooms, and schools.
