Local Organization Provides Critical Funds for Orinda Public Schools

An experienced clinical psychologist, Donald Crowe, PhD, has been in practice in Orinda, California, since 1975. Outside of his professional pursuits, Don Crowe, PhD, supports his community through such nonprofit organizations as the Educational Foundation of Orinda (EFO).

Composed of parents and community members like Don Crowe, PhD, the EFO works to provide financial support for educational and enrichment programs in Orinda public schools. The EFO was established in 1979 and partners with Orinda Union School District and Miramonte High School in its efforts to supplement state funding for the purpose of keeping Orinda schools nationally competitive.

Today, the EFO provides financial support that directly affects students in kindergarten through the 12th grade. In fact, EFO funds are currently covering 100 percent of all visual and performing arts programs at Miramonte High School. For the 2013-2014 school year alone, the EFO has committed $500,000 to Miramonte, which will be used to fund additional courses in English, as well as jazz band, mixed chorus, and digital photography. The EFO also supports a number of student programs and electives at Miramonte, including library and college counseling.
