The Foundation Club is student-run and provides financial assistance to students and teachers helping them cover expenses such as textbooks, standardized testing, college applications, and advanced placement test fees. The Foundation Club also finances student trips to tour college campuses including Santa Rosa Junior College, Sonoma State University, UC Berkeley, and more. Most of our students have never set foot on a college campus. Foundation Club officers build their leadership skills through collaboration, critical thinking, budget analyses and philanthropy.
The Teacher Grant Program provides teachers with funding for materials to support projects which engage students and enhance learning. In partnership with the Rotary Club of Santa Rosa Sunrise, the EAHS Foundation awarded five Teacher Grants in 2021.

COLLEGE & CAREER ENRICHMENT
Leadership Speaker Series
The Leadership Speakers Series provides on-campus opportunities for students to interact with local professionals who share their stories of perseverance and achievement and help students learn about many paths to success. If you have any questions or want to participate or would like to learn more about the Leadership Speaker Series please reach out to email@example.com.
Our virtual Career Day featured 40 professionals from diverse industries including accounting, finance, law enforcement, education, engineering, the trades, and much more. Paying it forward, many of our alumni created fun engaging videos for our students including Cesar Cruz, Class of 2009, Director of Videography at the regional Desire to Inspire Studios. Students chose at least three videos to view from industries that were of interest and developed summaries for use in class discussion. Students were encouraged to reach out to presenters to learn more and receive mentorship.
Certified Nursing Assistant
In partnership with the Santa Rosa Junior College, six to ten Elsie Allen High School students receive a full scholarship to the SRJC's summer nursing assistant program which makes them eligible for the state certification exam. Upon passing they are licensed certified nursing assistants and job-ready. This certification is now required to enter Sonoma State’s nursing program.
