The Donations Are Pouring In: 2021 Virtual Scholarship Gala!

The Donations Are Pouring In: 2021 Virtual Scholarship Gala!

We are amazed at the generous spirit of people, even in these difficult times! Jesus witnessed true generosity in the face of hardship, too. Luke 21:1-4 says, “Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, ‘Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.'”

As donations pour in from companies that have faced their own hardships during the pandemic, CLEF is truly grateful for all it’s blessings!

We are so excited to auction off these magnificent prizes off to you! 100% of the auction proceeds support student scholarships across our network of twenty-two Early Education and K-12 schools. Last year CLEF granted almost $900,000 in scholarships, empowering over 1800 students to learn, thrive, and grow!

We can’t wait to party (with a purpose!) with you at our 2021 Virtual Scholarship Gala! Bid on auction items at
