Cardinal Education Foundation (CEF)

Would you like to support youth in South Sioux City and Dakota City with a tax-deductible gift? The Cardinal Education Foundation is a tax-exempt organization that accepts gifts on behalf of the 3,800 students attending the SSC Community School District. With the help of generous donors, like you, the Education Foundation can provide many additional learning opportunities benefitting the youth of our community. The Cardinal Education Foundation is known for its scholarships, hosting the SSC High School Top Ten Percent Banquet and the Honors Convocation held each May at the South Sioux City Marriott Riverfront.

The overall mission and goal of the foundation is to enhance the tax-funded education by creating additional opportunities for students through philanthropic means. As the foundation director, I plan to strengthen the scholarship offering for SSC High School graduates, fund special projects, such as Career Tech and build a Classroom Mini-Grant program for teachers. I am working with the Cardinal Education Foundation Board to articulate a vision, create and strengthen partnerships and coordinate a strategic plan. For more information, schedule a presentation or to visit about a donation, please contact my office. On behalf of the students, I want to thank you for considering a gift.
