Mission + Impact
The Wiseburn Education Foundation exists to enhance student education, provide supplemental funding, and unify the schools and community of the Wiseburn Unified School District.
We work across all grade levels in the Wiseburn Unified School District to ensure learning takes place in a STEAM-rich and arts-abundant environment, and we build unity through beneficial partnerships with our schools, businesses, and community.
Founded in 1996 by caring parents and community leaders of the Hollyglen, Wiseburn & Del Aire communities, the Wiseburn Education Foundation has the sole purpose to fill the gap between state funds we require to maintain excellence in our schools and those our state provides.
When our schools and our students experience our district to the fullest, our entire community is affected. When our school district is fully-funded and our schools perform well, people want to live here. This in turn elevates our property values and brings support to our local businesses.
Today, WEF’s goal is to unite businesses, corporations and residents throughout our community to provide sustainable and consistent funding directly to the public schools of the WIseburn Unified School District.
Nestled in the east portion of El Segundo and the west portion of Hawthorne, Wiseburn includes the communities of Hollyglen, Del Aire and Wiseburn.
