Announcing the 2017 Fall Pledge Drive!

August 28, 2017 | 0 Comments

A Message from our Chairperson:


Dear ESUSD Families,

Welcome back for the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Neil Cadman and I am the Chairperson for the El Segundo Education Foundation, fondly known as “Ed!,” and a parent of three children in the El Segundo Unified School District.

We are excited to kick-off this year’s Fall Pledge Drive in support of our schools and our students. This year, the District has asked our community to raise an unprecedented $1.5 million to help make up the difference for the declining amount of tax dollars available to ESUSD from the State of California.

To meet this challenge, we are asking parents to contribute a minimum of $600 per student.

Our fundraising theme for this year reminds us that when every family participates, Every Student Wins. Every single school day, our children receive instruction in areas that simply would not exist without our community’s donations to our schools through Ed!.

To our past supporters and Superintendent’s Roundtable Members – THANK YOU! You have helped our district provide a rich, rounded world-class education to each of our children. If you are new to the District or have not understood what Ed! is, then I personally invite you to participate in supporting EVERY student!

The Fall Pledge Drive runs through September 30th. We encourage you to make your annual contribution during this time.

A special thank you to our corporate partner, Chevron, for offering to match any contribution of $600 or more during our Fall Pledge Drive!

If you have any questions or comments about Ed!, why ESUSD needs these funds, how we operate, etc., please feel free to contact me at edchair@esedf.org.

On behalf of my fellow volunteer Board members, our wish is for you and your children to have a truly exceptional school year!

Thank you –


Neil Cadman
