Description & History

The Ed Fund, West Contra Costa’s Public Education Fund, is an education nonprofit serving the entire West Contra Costa Unified School District, which spans the five East Bay cities of Richmond, El Cerrito, Hercules, Pinole and San Pablo. It is committed to providing the funding and strategic partnerships needed to close the opportunity and achievement gap for our students.

Founded in 1983 in response to the decline in funding to public education caused by the passage of Proposition 13, today the Ed Fund has a budget of more than a million dollars, which is raised through private donations and grants, and managers several different programs, including College Access, Out-of-School Time, Scholarships, Impact Grants, and Professional Development.
