CEF Budget

2020-21 Thank You Message:

We would like to thank our JB community for your support during this challenging year of fundraising.  We are very proud of what we were able to achieve for the 2020-21 school year despite the COVID-19 Pandemic challenges. 


CEF raised $120,000 during the 2020-21 school year through the following virtual fundraisers:  

  • Fall Registration Donation Drive
  • Corporate Matching
  • Virtual Shopping Fundraiser: Charleston Wrap
  • Front Porch Photo Sessions
  • eScrip Rewards Program
  • Amazon Smile Rewards Program
  • Farm Fresh to You, Delivery Service
  • Dippin’ Dots


With your support we were able to fund the following programs and associated staff salaries essential for the 2020-21 school year.   

  • Reading Specialist (TK-5)
  • Math Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Literacy Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Sr. Primary Para (TK-5)
  • Library Media Coordinator (part time)


Looking forward we know our kids need more!  We ask for your support and understanding of the vital role CEF fills at John Baldwin.  We anticipate an even greater need for our students for the 2021-22 school year and beyond.  Programs like, music for the younger grades and art for TK-5, lost funding this past year and will continue to not be offered for the 2021-22 school year based on the lack of community contributions.  With your help we can make a change and increase our programs.  

We ask that you recognize the importance each one of us has, big or small, to make a difference in our children’s education, now and in the future.   

Thank you for your support and have a great summer!

Our Goal for 2021/2022

Our goal for 2021-22 school year is to increase our level of innovative programs for our students not funded by our school district.       

To meet our goal we have a suggested donation request of $500 per student during the 2021 fall registration.

For the 2021/2022 school year, the current positions and programs funded by CEF will include: 

  • Reading Specialist (TK-5)
  • Math Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Literacy Instructional Assistant (TK-5)
  • Library Media Coordinator (TK-5)
  • CEF Operating Expenses (Accounting, Insurance, Non-Profit Dues)

In order to continue these valued programs and bring on future programs that were previously eliminated due to lack of CEF funds, we need everyone to contribute. Each student benefits every day from your tax-deductible CEF donation
