CEF Budget

Our Goal for 2020/2021

Welcome to John Baldwin Elementary School, home of the Cougars!  Every year, the Cougar Education Fund (CEF) is dedicated to raising the necessary funds to maintain and enhance the academic excellence at John Baldwin Elementary School.  We acknowledge this year will be a challenge in many ways for everyone, CEF included.  We also understand the impact COVID-19 has had on our community and anticipate these challenges to directly affect CEF's fundraising opportunities for this school year.

In light of these challenges our expenses have significantly been lowered for this year and our fundraising goal directly reflects this change.  Our goal is to raise $140,000 in order to pay for progressive and innovative programs, technology needs, and the salaries of JB faculty and staff not funded by our school district. 

This amount equates to $300 per student.  Lowering the donation request from the customary $550 to $300 per student reflects the cost to fund our programs for the 2020-2021 school year.  Making this change we anticipate and look forward to your participation.  

For the 2020/2021 school year, the positions and programs funded by CEF include: 
*Note all listed positions and programs will function and thrive in both distance learning and in person learning capacities.

  • Salaries of certified and non-certified personnel not paid by SRVUSD
  • Reading Specialist (TK-5)
  • Math Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Literacy Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Library Media Coordinator (TK-5)
  • Education Software and Licensing Fees (ex: Online Typing program, Raz Kids)
  • CEF Operating Expenses (Accounting, Insurance, Non-Profit Dues)

To meet these school funding needs, we have a donation request of $300 at fall registration.  The money raised in August and September will be used to fulfill the immediate needs of the faculty and our students this school year.

In order to continue these valued programs, we need everyone to contribute. Each student benefits every day from your tax-deductible CEF donation
