No-Cash/No-Effort Giving

There is an easy way to donate to Torrance Education Foundation, without giving us cash.  Shop as you would at Ralph’s or Amazon and they will give a percentage of your purchase to us to make YOUR community better. Here is how it works:

Amazon Smile

Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to TEF!

It’s the same Amazon you know: Same products, same prices, same service.

  • Instead of logging in through Amazon.com, Log in through Smile.Amazon.com.
  • At the top of your screen, you will see “Supporting:” It will probably default to an international charity. Click on the down arrow.
  • A pop-up window will open. At the top, click on “Change”
  • Where it says “Or pick your own charitable organization,” write Torrance Education Foundation and Select.

2018 Win a Toyota Winner Mylee Tynen

2018 Toyota Car Raffle Winner Mylee Tynen and her family

Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets to the 14th Annual Spectacular Toyota Car Raffle benefiting Torrance Education Foundation!

We are thrilled to congratulate our winner, Mylee Tynen, whose family now owns a beautiful, brand new 2018 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid SUV. Mylee is a teacher at Hickory Elementary school. When the winning ticket was selected at the 2018 Black & White Affair Dinner & Benefit, Mylee’s Principal Edna Schumacher was in the room and sent Mylee a text. “I thought for sure it was a joke!”, says Mylee, “But then, more texts kept coming from other people I knew. I couldn’t believe it!”

Everyone at TEF is deeply grateful to Toyota Motor Sales, USA, for their great generosity in donating our prize vehicle.

Thanks to thousands of supporters who purchased raffle tickets in 2018, Torrance Education Foundation raised more than $50,000 to support teachers, classrooms, school groups and other District priorities.
