Become a Corporate Investor!

Partner with TEF to impact 24,000 Torrance students.

We Invest in Torrance Kids and Torrance Schools.

Why? Because our kids deserve more than what California provides.

We want our kids to have more – more exciting learning opportunities, more STEM programs, more state-of-the-art classrooms, and more options for growth and creativity.

When you donate to TEF, your gift is an investment in Torrance kids. Our high-quality Torrance schools and excellent teachers simply can’t do it all. We want our kids to have more.

What could be more important than giving our kids the best education we can?

CONSIDER YOUR DONATION A LONG-TERM INVESTMENT.

“… An investment in the Torrance Education Foundation can only be considered an investment in the future of our community.”

Patrick J. Furey Torrance Mayor

“Since the early 90’s, Torrance Education Foundation has played a vital role in the Torrance Community with their continued support to our Torrance Schools. They have provided many wonderful things such as STEM Grants, Scholarships for graduating seniors, Summer School and many more. We are so grateful to partner with a wonderful organization as TEF.”
