About Us

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

We did it!!

Thanks to your support we made our Boosterthon goal! We are so grateful for our community and the tremendous support of our school this year. From donations to volunteer hours, our community has given so much to our school. We are in a great position to support our students this fall thanks to your generosity. Have a wonderful summer!

Thank you for your Support of the ANnual Fund Drive

We are so grateful for all donations to our Annual Fund Drive. This fall 2021-2022, DESEF is funding:

• Paraprofessionals

• New reading materials for all grades

• The Science Garden renovation and maintenance (Co-sponsored with PTA)

• Library time for all classes

• 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.

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.


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
