Our mission is to enhance and enrich education opportunities for all students of the Canby School District through financial assistance and community-wide volunteerism.



CEF awards grant requests from Canby School District's educators. Applicants are encouraged to submit grant requests detailing educationally

enriching projects for their students, outlining funds necessary to accomplish theses goals.


Following funding award, recipients follow up with the Board to provide project outcome and student feedback. 



A closely-held community of 18,000 residents, Canby patrons willingly support local businesses, resources and education at events such as CEF's Evening of Giving, Taste of Autumn and Spring Fling.


CEF's annual fundraiser in the fall is attended by the public, all proceeds are are given back as grant funding for educators of the Canby School District the following year.


HERO is an award presented to a community member with great passion, vision and generosity. Award recipients continually go above and beyond their call of duty while supporting education. 


The award is presented in recognition of former founding CEF Board Member Roger Reif. We honor Roger’s history of community support and involvement by selecting HEROs that emulate his benevolent nature.


The Canby Educational Foundation (CEF) was founded in 1997. Since its inception, CEF has been able to help support the Canby School District with over $1,000,000 generated through private donations, endowments, and fundraising efforts.
