Castaic Education Foundation
Helping students, one educator
at a time!
Founded in 1994, the purpose of the Ed Foundation is to assist in the achievement of a superior public education program by developing and managing projects that support programs that meet the changing needs of the District and its students.
The foundation consists of community members, CUSD employees, and parents who are committed to providing quality programs and resources for district students.
Since 1994, the Castaic Ed Foundation has awarded over $360,000 in grants and gifts to the educators and school sites in the Castaic Union School District!

Annual Art Contest
We are so pleased to announce the winner of our 3rd Annual Art Contest. Congratulations to Jaxon Yatron, a Kindergarten student at Northlake Hills Elementary School. Jaxon and his family will be special guests at the CUSD Board meeting on May 12, 2022, where his artwork, "I will change the world by..." will be on display in the Board Room for everyone to enjoy for years to come!
In addition, Jaxon has earned a pizza party for his class and a gift card for art supplies. Jaxon's artwork will be featured on all Castaic Education Foundation correspondence and social media until a new winner is announced next year!
Peter Sharp Endowment
In 2017 the Ed Foundation was the recipient of a large endowment from the Peter Sharp Trust. These funds will be used to provide support to our students each year in the areas of literacy, art and science.
