Emily Shane Foundation on CBS KCAL 9!
The Emily Shane Foundation’s SEA Program was featured on CBS KCAL 9 News on Thursday, March 9, with additional airings that followed throughout the week. We are so grateful to KCAL News Anchor Suzie Suh for her caring and commitment to raising awareness of our mission and work in Emily’s memory.

The response has resulted in many inquiries about expanding the SEA Program to include more middle schools across LA, indicating that there is a significant need for our work.
With your support, we can help countless more underserved students in our local communities!

Matching Funds Challenge
You Can Help ESF Serve More Students. Thanks to generous supporters, for every dollar you donate, a dollar will be matched to fund the SEA Program, up to a total of $65,000*.
Helping our foundation reach this goal will make it possible for us to reach and serve more students, and to operate at maximum effectiveness. Your support will truly allow us to help equalize educational disparity, and make it possible for struggling middle schoolers to attain academic success. Middle school is a key time when help with serious learning deficits and acquiring the skills necessary to be a successful student are critical.
Executive Director: Ellen Shane
Our driving mission is to support local, disadvantaged students with the educational resources they need to thrive in middle school and beyond. We not only offer individualized academic coaching and mentorship, but we work hard to build relationships that are positive and lasting.

As an educator for one of the largest school districts in the nation, I can attest to the vital need for students to have support, such as mentors/tutors, beyond the scope of the classroom (teacher). The Emily Shane Foundation provides necessitous students with the opportunities and resources needed to achieve academic and personal success. This foundation works to close the opportunity gap, a systematic issue, existing within the educational system, existing within my own classroom. This foundation is a vehicle in which I can work on this disparity on a more macro level.
Lifting Students Up Before They Fail
When you donate $1,000, you provide an entire year of support for a struggling or failing middle school student who has no other recourse. Children have access to one-on-one caring, learning and guidance. The Emily Shane Foundation sets children on a positive pathway so they may achieve the academic success that is directly related to reaching their goals and dreams.
