The Classroom Fund celebrates 10 years

The Classroom Fund supports, celebrates and elevated the impact of educators in our community, and just recently completed its 10th year. Research estimates that the average teacher spends several hundred dollars of their own money each year to buy items for their students. The Classroom Fund was created by EPCF to relieve that financial burden while ensuring educators have the opportunity to work with new and innovative learning materials. Since 2011, over a half million dollars have been awarded to purchase materials and equipment to enhance learning opportunities and engage students in the El Paso and Las Cruces area.
