President's Message

I am excited and honored to be able to introduce to you the Turlock Education Foundation. We are a brand new non-profit organization founded in 2011 and governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.  I hope you take a moment to learn more about our organization, what we hope to accomplish, and how you can help us and all the students within Turlock Unified School District.  

First and foremost I'd like to introduce our mission.  Two dozen dedicated volunteers worked hard to establish the fundamental mission of the Foundation.  The results of that two solid days of work are as follows:   

The mission of the Turlock Education Foundation, a non-profit organization supporting Turlock Unified School District students, is to enhance and enrich the educational experience


establishing and maintaining a pathway to secure vital resources and partnerships with individuals, families, organizations, and businesses.


We also identified two objectives we felt critical to achieving that that mission.

  1. The Turlock Education Foundation will be a transparent, ethical, and sustainable organization.
  2. By 2017, the Turlock Education Foundation will raise $1,000,000 to enhance and enrich the educational experience of Turlock Unified School District students. 


Thank you for visiting. With your help we can build the Turlock Education Foundation into a pillar of our community.
