Q: How does the CHS Foundation Raise Money?


A: Any and every way we can!


Our Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c3) tax exempt organization, with every donation is an investment in the future of California -- our students -- and tax free!

We host a variety of events like our Phon-a-thon, which features volunteer parents contact each student’s household to get them involved and solicit donations to make their high school years the best they can possibly be.

  • We host the annual Spring Fling, a Dinner-Dance and Silent Auction of fabulous prizes donated by local businesses and the community. The best part is the event is held at Sea World, our Partner in Education.
  • The Foundation committee, athletic groups, clubs, and ASB classes solicit items from the extended community. Individual items or baskets of services, goods, and tickets to attractions and performances are auctioned. Proceeds go to the specific group that solicited the items.
  • Save Our Sports (SOS) Fundraiser is sponsored at Clairemont High School by the Foundation. SOS is associated with The Buick Invitational Golf Tournament, held in February at Torrey Pines Golf Course. The teams or clubs that sell tickets to this golf tournament, receive 100% of the proceeds. Your company or organization can take advantage of the discounted prices and support the sport or club of its choice. The tickets make great gifts.

  • In addition to fundraising, the Foundation supports various events at the school such as Homecoming. The Foundation donates prize money to the classes participating in the half-time parade with a theme float. We invite alumni to judge the floats.
  • The President’s Museum is part of the Clairemont High School Foundation. This is the largest presidential museum west of the Mississippi. We have a very dedicated and hard\working teacher and Executive Director, James Fletcher, who maintains this marvelous addition to Clairemont.
