(Los Alamitos, CA) – Once again, City National Bank takes the top sponsorship spot in the Los Alamitos Education Foundation’s (LAEF) fundraising campaign, “Fundraising February for Los Al Kids” at $10,000! The fundraising campaign replaced LAEF’s signature fundraising event, The Royal Gala. LAEF is thrilled to have City National Bank sponsor them again at the Archduke level, and excited to have their partnership and support of educational excellence in our community.
City National is a Los Angeles-based National Bank offering a full complement of banking, trust and investment services through 73 offices, including 19 full-service regional centers, in Southern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Nevada, New York City, Nashville, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Washington, D.C. and Miami (as CN Bank). City National has a company philosophy of fostering healthy communities, strengthening local neighborhoods, and encouraging employment and economic and community development. Investing in the communities they serve is the way City National does business. City National is happy to support LAEF this year and its mission in education excellence for the kids of the Los Alamitos Unified School District.
Proceeds from the campaign will support the launch of the middle school Well Spaces, which provide mental health and wellness services at Oak and McAuliffe Middle Schools. LAEF donated $60,000 to build out the spaces and is working to develop programing and services in conjunction with district administration. Donations will also directly fund teachers for free elementary world language classes, which are taking place online for the 2020-21 school year and include Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese, French and American Sign Language. The STEAM initiative and providing fee waiver scholarships for families in need continue to be areas funded by LAEF donor contributions.
