your child's education directly benefits from your donation to wcef

Welcome to the 2020 school year!  Every year, Buena Vista Elementary relies on donations to WCEF to help fund a well-rounded, competitive education for your child.


Your donation to WCEF helps provide:

  • Salaries for more than 20 specialists and teachers in Art, Music, Science, PE, and Math
  • 36 weeks of Art, Music, & Science classes (TK-5) and PE (1-5)
  • Time for teacher collaboration
  • Professional math coaching for teachers and students

We are very fortunate to live in a community that values public schools. Since 1983, the Walnut Creek Education Foundation (WCEF TK-12) has invested funds from parents and the community back into our schools to enhance education for all students. 


Though we are starting school in a distance learning environment, our students still depend on donations to WCEF to provide district-wide programs and salaries at all WCSD schools and Las Lomas High School. Our schools are facing the worst budgets in decades. WCEF is committed to remaining nimble as we continue to serve our students, staff and administrators this year and in years to come. 

We ask 100% of our families to participate every academic year by making a tax-deductible donation that's right for their budget.


WCEF works closely with our districts, principals, and donors to support the needs of all 5,100 students. WCEF asks for $600 per student ($50 per month), but due to budget cuts and added expenses such as 1:1 technology, we recommend $800 per student.


We understand family budgets vary; please give what you can.



California’s shrinking education budget can affect your child through reduced access to the arts and science, fewer electives, reduced library hours, little to no additional math support, lack of counselors/support staff, and more. This doesn’t have to happen. Help deliver an enhanced education to our students. Donate to WCEF today.


Together, with the Buena Vista PTA, we can offer students an enhanced education and families a community that makes the education of your child, and every student, a priority.
