About Us

About the Organization: 

Founded in 2011, Californians Dedicated to Education Foundation is anchored by a small professional staff; a highly engaged 11-member Board of Directors; a complement of highly skilled and effective consultants; strong partnerships with the California Department of Education (CDE) and other education coalition members; foundations and corporations with a commitment to public education; and a network of individuals, educational institutions, and nonprofits across the State of California who share our commitment to public education. Our mission is to work as a trusted partner with state education leaders and entities to improve public education through creating, resourcing, and implementing solutions that result in a strong and valued public education system that serves every student in California. The CDE Foundation accomplishes its mission in three ways:

  • We CONVENE people and organizations to develop goals and innovative solutions to improve for our state’s public education system.
  • We COMMUNICATE to build awareness and access to key resources.
  • We CATALYZE new approaches to meet statewide goals, assembling and stewarding resources including philanthropic investments in the CDE and others, to invest in the development of innovative ideas and practices that can scale to advance public education
