Choice For Children Education Foundation


CCEF stands for "Choice for Children Education Foundation".

CCEF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and a "Functionally Integrated Type III Supporting Organization" that is run by parent volunteers of Livermore Valley Charter School (LVCS). We provide fundraising activities to close the "funding gap" left from inadequate state and local funding.

Currently, LVCS receives $1,168 less per student than other local schools. The funding gap for the 2012-2013 school year is nearly $1.1 Million dollars.

All funds raised through CCEF go EXCLUSIVELY to the operational budget of LVCS and are RESTRICTED to the following programs: Art, Music, Remediation, Global Language, Primary Science, Library, and Technology.

Please feel free to browse our website for more in-depth information of our operations. We welcome any questions or comments you may have.


Board Meetings

The CCEF board meets monthly and typically on the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month from 7pm-9pm in the Library at Livermore Valley Charter School. Every effort will be made to post the meeting agendas one week in advance of the meeting.

We are proponents of open and honest communication, transparency, and increased collaboration. Due to some confidentiality requirements there is a brief closed session for board members only; however, meetings are open to the public and we highly encourage parents, teachers and all stakeholders of the LVCS community to attend.
