"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."

—Winston Churchill

Public charter schools — Just like traditional public schools, public charters like CLC Schools are funded by the State of California. But, like our state public education at all levels — preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and higher education — state funding has been declining, inconsistent and precarious in recent years.

Tax-deductible gifts — Each of the public charter schools operated by CLC Schools have 501(c)(3) educational foundations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions for the academic and enrichment programs offered at the schools.

Support our schools! — Please click on the links below to visit the online giving pages of ACLC (Alameda Community Learning Center) or Nea Community Learning Center to support our schools.
