Our Philosophy

The San Luis Coastal Education Foundation invests in dynamic thinkers across our school sites who have the ideas, passion, and expertise to transform learning for our students and set them on a path toward future personal and professional success. The Foundation invests in innovative ideas that can be developed into successful programs, impacts of which can be measured, shared and replicated.


Grant Making

Through the Foundation’s grant making, we seek to inspire our partners in education throughout the San Luis Coastal Unified School District to dream big, be creative, and accomplish projects they never before thought possible. Foundation grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize, and reward innovative and impactful educational activities that accomplish the program priorities shared by the Foundation and school district.

Opportunity Initiative

Nearly 40% of students within the San Luis Coastal Unified School District are socioeconomically disadvantaged. For many students, hard work and determination is not enough to overcome the financial barriers that limit their ability to access college and career opportunities. We are working to change that.



Andrea Blanco Legacy Fund

As an educator and tireless advocate for the Latino Community and disadvantaged students, Andrea devoted her life to helping students succeed. Andrea was known in the community for going above and beyond for her students — from ensuring a student has a ride to school to frequently helping students’ families with immigration issues, even helping students with college applications and beyond.

Together, we can continue her work and legacy.
