All students deserve to be prepared for their next step after graduation no matter what pathway they choose - community college, technical school, a four-year university or directly into the workforce. We want CCS students to be prepared.

With 35% of students qualifying for free and reduced lunch, there are many challenges that face Cabarrus County Schools and the Cabarrus County Education Foundation is committed to providing hope and opportunity for every single child. With your support, The Foundation is able to fund amazing opportunities that expand student learning, connect community partners with local businesses and support recruiting top talent that are making a real difference in the lives of our students.

There are many ways to invest in CCS students:

  • Support our Partners in Education Fund that allows CCEF to use funds for its most impactful use
  • Invest in a specific program that supports your business' community outreach goals
  • Sponsor a CCEF Event that introduces others to the important work we do
  • Recognize current and retired CCS Staff for their outstanding efforts through our Thank-a-Teacher Gift Catalog or Brick of Honor initiatives
  • Contribute through one of our third party fundraising efforts

Consider increasing the impact of your gift by becoming a GEM – someone who Gives Each Month - and make an impact all year long. Matching gifts can add even more value to your donation. Check to see if your company or your spouse's company matches charitable gifts to double your impact! Together we make a difference!
