Donate. Sponsor. Pledge. Remember.
There are several ways you can support the most vulnerable
Donate today and have an immediate impact on the life of a child
The children who benefit from CEFO are often in need of the most basic things that many take for granted. A donation in any amount can contribute towards putting food on the table, clothing a child in the winter, or helping a family get out of a dangerous situation. Your donation will have an immediate impact on a child sitting in a school classroom today.

Join CEFO in helping these children succeed in school. Your donation can change their future.
It takes a few minutes. No amount is too small to help a child who needs it.
Send your gift by mail by completing our Donation Form and mailing it to the address below.

In recognition of their support, our sponsors are provided complimentary seating at our Annual Gala Dinner, Cabaret & Auction event each year, where we get to thank them in person for the difference they make.
