Our Story

The Chesapeake Public Schools Educational Foundation (CPSEF) was founded in 2005 with the purpose of supporting our local school district. This group of philanthropic community and business leaders has worked diligently over the past 15 years to support many endeavors including purchasing technology for our schools, upgrading equipment in the Chesapeake Planetarium and awarding over $200,000 in grants to educators to implement innovative ideas in their classrooms.

As we move forward, the CPSEF has renewed its focus to providing resources to enhance learning experiences. We accomplish this by supporting educators, creating innovative learning environments, and enhancing the educational experiences for students.

In the past three years, we have opened the Teacher Supply Center that allows teachers to shop for classroom supplies at no cost, provided professional development opportunities for our educators through our Speaker Series, awarded Innovative Instructional Grants, and donated $100,000 to Chesapeake Public Schools to provide hot spots for students in need.

The Chesapeake Public Schools Educational Foundation is proud of our accomplishments and the impact that we have had on Chesapeake Public Schools. We hope that when you are deciding which non-profit to support, you will consider our organization.
