WHAT & WHY OF COMMUNITY GIVING

Community Giving enables CWC schools to secure necessary funding to fully implement our CWC learning model that we all love. 100% of funding raised through community giving stays at the school to support your child’s education. Community giving funds are needed to support all of the holistic programs that make CWC so unique, and support students as they build skills needed to lead across lines of difference, and work towards serving as true citizens of the world

What does Community Giving cover?

100% of every dollar raised through our school’s community giving directly supports programs at CWC Mar Vista. CWC LA schools are non-profit, public charter schools. The base of our funding comes from the government. Community giving dollars support programs that cannot be funded by government dollars alone, and help us implement the three core pillars of our model that develop students to thrive in our diverse society and be leaders in their communities.

Note: All donations to CWC LA schools are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

COMMUNITY GIVING IMPACT

Across all grades, community giving (which includes family giving, sponsorships, and events) supports our core model and helps fund other programs and elements at each school. Elementary and middle school community giving is run separately and supports programs on their respective campuses.
