The Carmel Education Foundation's mission is to support Carmel Clay students in academic achievement and lifelong learning. CEF Mission Statement
One of the oldest foundations of its kind, the Carmel Education Foundation was created to help Carmel Clay students achieve their full potential. Since 1966, the Foundation has awarded over $2,000,000 in college scholarships to CHS seniors and over $525,000 in education grants to increase student achievement for all 16,000 Carmel Clay students.
The Carmel Education Foundation is governed by a volunteer board of directors who give their time and energy to accelerate the Foundation's mission by funding education grants for teachers, awarding more than 65 college scholarships annually, and expanding the resources of Carmel Clay Schools.
CEF hosts a number of events supported by individuals and businesses in the Carmel community, such as the annual Showcase in mid-February, Telethon in mid-January and the Ghosts and Goblins 5K/2K in October.
To show your appreciation for making a difference, you may thank any CCS staff member by honoring them with a CEF Honor Roll. You may recognize a teacher, bus driver, school secretary, instructional assistant, janitor, co-worker .... ANYONE working for CCS!
