Del Mar Schools Education Foundation needs more donations to meet goal

By Karen Billing

The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) has entered the homestretch in its fundraising campaign. As of last week, DMSEF had raised $725,000 so far, which is roughly the same point they were at last year according to Drew Isaacman, the foundation’s interim president. The deadline for fundraising is April 30.

The foundation has $1.27 million left to meet its $2 million goal to fund a full Extended Studies Curriculum, which includes specialized instructors in science, technology, music, art and PE.

“We stay committed to raising funds for ESC teachers,” Isaacman said. “This is our one chance as parents to make a significant impact on the education our children receive. I hope everyone takes the opportunity to contribute.”

Isaacman said that there have been some questions from the Del Mar Hills Academy community regarding the funding model and in an effort to be as transparent as possible the Foundation will hold an informational meeting on April 3 at 7 p.m. at Del Mar Hills Academy.
