New to Eagle Peak Montessori and have questions about CFEP? Learn more about its purpose, and how to get involved here.
Community Foundation for Eagle Peak’s (CFEP) purpose is to provide funding to support Eagle Peak Montessori School (EPMS) through various donations, grants, and fundraising activities. The work of CFEP is essential to fully fund EPMS’s programs.
Like many charter schools, EPMS receives significantly less funding than traditional public schools. We receive a block grant for operations. While this grant covers the majority of Eagle Peak’s expenses, it’s not enough to provide a complete Montessori educational program. Because of this shortfall, EPMS cannot fulfill its instructional mission without your help.
Because of successful fundraisers, an active board of directors and volunteer time invested by EPMS families, CFEP has successfully funded programs that include Art, Music, PE, and Environmental Education. We have also helped bridge financial gaps during times of cutbacks by the state including the challenges of navigating the 2020 COVID pandemic. The foundation is run entirely by volunteers.
CFEP is a California non-profit public benefit corporation exempt from federal income tax under section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code. CFEP operates under an MOU (memorandum of understanding) with the Eagle Peak Board of Directors. All fundraising efforts are conducted under the terms of this agreement. Any contributions to CFEP are tax-deductible as a charitable donation.
There are many ways you can get involved and make a difference. You can volunteer during an event, help plan a fundraiser, join our Board of Directors, support a local business through one of our dine events, buy an item at our annual auction and so much more. Any contribution whether in time or money impacts everyone of the students and their experience at Eagle Peak Montessori School.
