About Us

What We Do

EdUCate! is a nonprofit foundation established in 1993 to provide supplemental funds for all five of the University City Public Schools:

  • Curie Elementary
  • Doyle Elementary
  • Spreckels Elementary
  • Standley Middle
  • University City High

Mission Statement

Our mission is to support the whole child, academically, socially, and emotionally.


Since 1993, EdUCate! has distributed funds to the five University City public schools. The money has been raised primarily through donations and the many events EdUCate! offers.

How We Help

Funds that have not been restricted to a specific program or school are distributed in the following manner: we allocate 33% of available funds to the EdUCate! Math Academy (a cluster-wide project) and Jr. Achievement’s BizTown for all three elementary schools, 33% to a simplified teacher grant process (held twice annually) and 33% to the principals of the five schools for which we raise funds.

There are many ways for you to get involved with EdUCate!
