Congratulations to Carlsbad Educational Foundation for a successful 17th annual Carlsbad Golf Classic, a benefit for the Foundation and for students of the Carlsbad Unified School District. Funds raised are directed to music and STEM programs at the 14 District schools.

Regents Bank was proud to sponsor this great event, which included not just a golf tournament, but also a buffet-style dinner, silent auction, raffle prizes and live music by the Naked Saturdays Band. Raffle participants tried their luck at winning the grand prize of a week-long vacation to Poipu Beach, Kauai or the first prize of a one-week vacation to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. Other raffle prizes included hotel stays, meals, dinners, entertainment and a chance to be in the audience at Wheel of Fortune.

Carlsbad Education Foundation has been a Regents Bank client for years. In addition to its annual golf tournament, we also support its annual Pedal for a Purpose event, a stationary bike-a-thon that raises tens of thousands of dollars for the school district.

Carlsbad Education Foundation is a unique 501(C)3 organization. Every donation is put directly into the Carlsbad Unified School District schools because of the Foundation’s earned income, revenue generating programs.

These programs include:

  • Kids’ Care – a Foundation-managed before-and-after-school licensed childcare program at every District elementary school.
  • SOAR – a Foundation-managed after-school licensed childcare and enrichment program for middle school students.
  • Summer Enrichment – half-day student enrichment programs offered by the Foundation throughout summer
  • High School Summer Academy – a Foundation-operated, accelerated summer school program for high school students to earn advancement credits

Parents and business leaders started Carlsbad Education Foundation 30 years ago. Its earliest fundraising effort supported a high school library. Today, the nearly 11,000 students of Carlsbad Unified School District benefit from weekly music instruction with new musical instruments, hands-on science programs and extra enrichment programs like Junior Achievement’s BizTown, the Lux Art Institute’s “Valise Project,” an iPad Pilot Project and more.

We look forward to our continued partnership with this dynamic organization. To learn more about how you can help Carlsbad Education Foundation support Carlsbad Unified School District students, visit
