About the ABCUSD Education Foundation
The ABCUSD Education Foundation was founded in February 2012 to support district programs in jeopardy due to budget cuts. In the last year, the Foundation has supported many programs in the ABC Unified School District, including: two Ragnar Relay race fundraisers ; an “It’s Up To All of Us” pedestrian safety public education campaign, a school backpack initiative for homeless children, supported the first ABC Reading Olympics and sponsored two summer camps—one for 6th graders and one for developmentally disabled youth. It has organized a committed Board of individuals representing business and education who donate their time, finances and expertise to ensure that all ABC students and every ABC school succeeds.
