The Council Rock Education Foundation (CREF) is a non-profit 501C3 organization, in support of innovative educational initiatives that provide advanced educational opportunities and enhance the curriculum for students in Council Rock schools.
Our Foundation is a volunteer organization working in partnership with the Council Rock School Board, administration, faculty, staff, and students as we fund programs enhancing the CRSD curriculum and our students’ lives.
Since 2007 the Council Rock Education Foundation (CREF) has proudly enhanced the learning experience of Council Rock students. In the last decade, the Education Foundation, in partnership with generous donors, has directly impacted thousands of students by awarding more than 136 Innovative Learning Grants totaling more than $400,000 to Council Rock teachers and principals for students. These projects, not covered by the District’s annual budget, engage, educate and inspire young minds through experiential learning, igniting their passion for continued education.
