About The Host Organization
The Ed Fund, West Contra Costa’s Public Education Fund, was founded in 1983 in response to the decline in funding to public education caused by the passage of Proposition 13. Proposition 13 severely cut funding to local public schools. In 2010, the Ed Fund recognized that there was a strong need in the community for someone to convene and align community partners in support of students of the West Costa Contra Unified School District. Beginning in 2011, the Ed Fund convened the West County College Access Network and Out-of-School Time Collaborative consisting of partner organizations representing the West Contra Costa Unified School District, Contra Costa College, city recreation departments, community based organizations, and local governmental agencies.
