Templeton Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that donates 100-percent of fundraiser proceeds to benefit the students of Templeton Unified School District. These schools include Templeton Elementary, Vineyard Elementary, Templeton Middle School, and Templeton High School.
Founded in 1990, Templeton Education Foundation has raised over 1.3 Million Dollars for Templeton Schools. These funds came from fundraising events held in Templeton with the support of local businesses and volunteers, as well as Templeton School staff and students.
The foundation is solely supported by volunteers and donations. They have had dinners with silent and live auctions like Denim & Diamonds and one of their biggest yearly fundraisers is our Fireworks booth, which last year had gross sales of over $75,000. The fundraiser proceeds from last year allowed
