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

We invest in public education


The Redwood City Education Foundation is focused on providing financial support, targeted advocacy, and meaningful community and parent engagement to address systemic inequities and help all students thrive. 

Our newly redefined, sharpened mission is to increase the early academic performance of underserved students. While in the long-term we still intend to provide services and  increase resources for all schools in Redwood City School District, in the short-term we are intentionally shifting our focus to support schools with large percentages of low  income students, or students who qualify for Free and Reduced-Price Lunch.


By proactively supporting underserved students, this model improves their ability to meet math and literacy proficiency standards; thereby reducing enrollment in remedial courses and increasing their likelihood of meaningful success in high school and beyond.

We aspire

We serve

RCEF proudly serves students and teachers of the Redwood City School District, our community partners, and our generous donors.

We need your support today!
