who we are

Led by parents, educators, and community members, MDUSD Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing educational enrichment programs across the 28,000-student Mt. Diablo Unified School District. While we work in close collaboration with the district and individual school sites to determine priorities, we are a separate, independent entity from the district, laser-focused on enhancing the experience of every student, no matter where they live within our serving area.

what we do

The foundation provides funding for a variety of equity-based STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs for students, both inside and outside the classroom. We do this at every campus governed or authorized by Mt. Diablo Unified School District, impacting all students from kindergarten through high school seniors. We work closely with teachers, principals, and staff to identify enrichment opportunities that educate and inspire kids. Our partnerships with local organizations allow the foundation to tap into Bay Area talent that we bring right into the classroom.

 

Our programs are diverse and run the educational gamut. We brought renowned local chalk artist Mark Wagner to help all of our elementary students create beautiful, larger-than-life school mascots on the blacktops of every campus. . . all while learning about the science of color. We fund proven, supplemental science programs that are making a real difference at all of our elementary, middle, and high schools. The foundation has provided funding to support initiatives as varied as visual arts programs, student gardens, robotics programs, performing arts residencies, and biomedical science and engineering projects delivered through Project Lead the Way. And because learning need not be confined to the classroom, we’ve sponsored student science excursions to destinations such as Chabot Space and Science Center and Pigeon Point Lighthouse in Pescadero.
