Ravenswood Education Foundation

Imagine if all children, on both sides of Highway 101, received the same great education. The Ravenswood Education Foundation’s (REF) mission is to ensure equitable and high-quality educational opportunities for all students in the K-8 Ravenswood City School District in eastern Menlo Park and East Palo Alto.

Our approach is unique. We work side-by-side with Ravenswood leaders and bring together community partners, concerned citizens and over 600 volunteers to make a difference in the school day for every one of the district’s 3000 students and teachers. Since 2007, REF’s financial investment has ensured that Ravenswood schools now have art and music teachers, science labs and Makerspaces, mental health counselors, summer school, professional development and much more that provide students with consistent, equitable opportunities year after year.
