Welcome to the CARE Foundation

The CARE FOUNDATION (formerly known as the CUSD Foundation) is a 501c3 public charity. Our mission is very simple: we raise monies to enhance the education of students attending public schools in the Capistrano Unified School District — nothing more, nothing less.  We are in no way associated with or affiliated with the District. We simply exist to serve the students’ needs.

We serve over 50,000 elementary, middle and high school students across 7 cities in South Orange County.
