About

History

Many of Leavenworth’s residents can remember the 1997 failure of the Cascade School District’s double levy. We knew something had to be done, and this ‘something’ turned out ho be a group of citizens coming together and forming Cascade Education Foundation.

CEF was spearheaded by visionaries like Craig Carson, Ken Marson, Greg Clevenger, and Ron Carpenter, who realized that the school district needed an alternative source of funding for a wide range of needs.

CEF has historically and consistently been able to fund grants and scholarships to the Cascade School District.
