The Foundation is committed to providing quality education to the 9,300 students in 15 schools throughout the Redwood City School District. The children of Redwood City School District come from varied cultures and economic backgrounds, residing in Redwood City, portions of Atherton, Menlo Park, San Carlos, Woodside and some unincorporated areas of San Mateo County. The school district's student population is 67% Hispanic with 50% of the district's students living at or below the poverty level. Many of these children have their only arts and music experience provided through the schools. All deserve a quality education. Research stresses the importance of arts education in helping all children succeed.

With our public schools constantly struggling with budget cuts, this organization has been key to ensuring that all students in the Redwood City School District have access to programs that would otherwise be eliminated. For example, district-wide music education and instrumental instruction has been saved because of funding from the RCEF. The foundation ensures that music is provided to 1st-5th grades with Kinder to be added in the near future. Instrumental music is offered for grades 6-8, preparing middle schoolers for high school Marching Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band and String Orchestra. This year, through RCEF Smart grants, all district schools will have access for technology funding for hardware(iPads, Chrome Books), training and educational apps. Members on this all volunteer board work tirelessly for bettering educational opportunities in this very diverse and challenging district, and for them, we are grateful.
