Excellence in Education Foundation

Giving back to enhance and ensure a stronger future.

The Charles City Excellence in Education Foundation was established in the early 1990's as a tool to help assist in the educational process and to benefit students of the Charles City Community School District. CCEEF has been gaining significant momentum over the past few years. Because of several well attended and highly successful fundraising events, CCEEF grants made during 2013 will reach record levels. Below, you will find the mission, vision, board members, and information on the foundation.  If you are interested in donating to the foundation, please click on our Foundation Brochure. All donations are tax deductible, as the foundation is a 501(c)3 corporation.

Several projects have been funded by the foundation, and we are striving to generate more funds to enhance the education of students beyond the normal educational budget.  If you are interested in learning more about the foundation, please do not hesitate to contact: Dr. Dan Cox at: dcox@charlescityschools.org or 641-257-6500.
