About San Juan Education Foundation

The San Juan Education Foundation is an independent 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that supports programs in science, technology, arts and reading in San Juan schools. Our tax ID number is 94-3160088.

SJEF believes inspired and innovative teaching better prepares students for success. By providing funds for teacher-driven learning projects where public funding falls short, the foundation rewards initiative and creativity and helps ensure that children are not denied critical learning opportunities.

As a strong, high-achieving community, we are not satisfied with the status quo in our schools. We cannot depend on government funding alone to provide the high caliber educational opportunities our students need and we demand. We believe it is critically important to enrich the classroom experience and offer support to teachers who want to be creative, innovative and challenge students. The goal of our Foundation’s grassroots support is to provide the catalyst for increasing numbers of teachers to innovate and improve the educational experience.

Community investment in San Juan Unified education benefits not only our students, but the community itself. As a district-wide foundation with a focus on science, technology,  arts, and reading, the Foundation can leverage, target and maximize a large pool of resources, often from outside our San Juan Unified community. This creates a greater impact compared to individual schools working alone.
