California ABLE Fund

California ABLE Fund PhotoThe California ABLE Fund is a forward thinking partnership between the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE), Californians Together, with the California Community Foundation (CCF) serving as fiscal sponsor.

The California ABLE Fund addresses the needs of California’s over 1.3 million K-12 students who are English Language Learners.  The mission of the California ABLE Fund is to increase donor engagement and philanthropic dollars in order to build ongoing funding for leadership and educational projects, which develop and advance biliteracy and high academic achievement for English Language Learners.

The purpose of the California ABLE Fund is to provide opportunities for supporters and new prospective donors to join in a collective impact on the educational development of English Language Learners, with options to utilize untapped funding vehicles for planned giving.  This will be accomplished by growing a two-pronged philanthropic effort: (1) Fund for current projects that support the mission and purpose of the California ABLE Fund; and (2) Endowment Fund to advance the mission and purpose of the California ABLE Fund into perpetuity.  The California ABLE Fund is the dream of CCF donor, Sandra K. Anderson, in partnership with the California Association of Bilingual Education (CABE) and Californians Together.
