Dear Supporters,

Since its inception in 2012, CCEF has been guided by a commitment to ensure our students were given the greatest opportunity to learn and grow right here in Cherokee County. Our community continues to be a sought-after destination for business and families, due in large part to the incredible success of our award-winning school district.

CCEF seeks to raise funds to continue to support our Leadership Development and Training, District Wide Special Project Grants, High School Credit Recovery, CHOICE Program for Special Education students, Teacher, Volunteer, and Support Staff of the Year initiatives, and our Classroom Impact Grants. These initiatives have proven to successfully prepare students for graduation, encouraging them to continue their education or move into their chosen career path upon completion of high school.

We are very fortunate to have such tremendous community-wide support for all of our initiatives and fundraising events.  Our Board works hard to govern the funds we raise, ensuring maximum dollars go directly to our students and teachers. The results are visible in our classrooms, our test scores, and our accolades.

We invite you to join us in our efforts to ensure that Cherokee County is the best place to live, learn, and grow!
