About Us

DESEF is the Disney Elementary Education Foundation, a non-profit fundraising group run by parent volunteers for Walt Disney Elementary.

ANNUAL FUND DRIVE ENDS ON SEPT.18th HELP US REACH OUR GOAL!

therm3

Our 2020 Annual Fund Drive is underway but we are more than $19,000 short of our goal. This money funds additional programs this year as well as affects programs next year. Without this money, we will have to make hard choices on which programs to keep. Please click the DONATE button in top right corner to support Walt Disney Elementary.

We are so grateful for any and all donations to our Annual Fund Drive. This year, DESEF is funding:

• Paraprofessionals

• Academic intervention (I.e. Dragon Academy)

• Social-emotional learning and support (i.e. Rainbow Room)

• TK/K music

• Additional existing programs as they become possible (i.e. assemblies, recess enrichment, Meet the Masters art programs, Scripps Spelling Bee, and Odyssey of the Mind)

• New needs as they arise to enrich student experience

Our students continue to need support and DESEF will be nimble and flexible, looking for new ways to enrich our students' educational experience.

If your company gives Matching Funds, please Click here for Matching Funds. We'd love to double your donation with Matching Funds from your employer. Thank you for all of your support!

What is DESEF?

The Disney Elementary School Education Foundation (DESEF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit fundraising organization that is run by parent volunteers. DESEF is the primary fundraising organization at Walt Disney Elementary School. State funding for public schools in California is among the lowest in the nation. Our goal is to "fill the funding gaps" so that all students in TK-5 grades benefit from an enriched academic experience at Walt Disney. Without the generous donations from families and businesses, many programs and staff positions would cease to exist at our school.

Mission Statement

DESEF's purpose is to enrich the academic, artistic, social, and athletic education of the children at Walt Disney. We raise funds to pay for school programs, personnel, equipment, and services that are not funded through the school district. Please view the DESEF Funding Table 2019-20 for a list of programs and services that DESEF will support this school year at Walt Disney.

Volunteer

DESEF needs you! There are countless opportunities to get involved, including board member positions, event chairs, and committee members. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact DESEF President Lauren Shimek at desedfoundation@comcast.net
