Dear Fellow CDM Parents,

The goal of the CDM Foundation is to enrich the future of our high school and middle school students.  We are a parent run group that invests in educational programs and campus improvements that helps students prosper, have a positive school experience and prepare for their college careers. We want to provide all students with better tools, improved services and world-class learning opportunities to enhance their educational experience.

The Foundation invests 100% of the money raised in campaigns to programs and initiatives that our public-school system no longer funds.  These campaigns coupled with other CDM parent groups and the NMUSD have helped CDM become a nationally recognized school.  Our community is proud of CDM’s academic accomplishments and strives to continue to raise the bar to help our students meet and exceed their full potential.


The Foundation funds campaigns, clubs and initiatives that are identified by administrators and parents.  In the 2019/20 school year, the Foundation is building campaigns to support peer tutoring, academic counseling, campus safety, enhancing social interactions and improving campus facilities. 

The Foundation is completely funded by CDM parent donations.  We realize that you receive many requests for support and must prioritize your commitments.  You can feel secure that your donation will go to enhancing and enriching the culture of CDM.

Thank you for supporting the CDM Foundation.  We look forward to our partnership and please accept our sincere thanks for your time and consideration.

The goal of the CDM Foundation is to enrich the future of our high school and middle school students. The CDM Foundation is a parent-run group that invests in educational programs and campus improvements that help students prosper, have a positive school experience and prepare for their college careers. 

The following is a list of The CDM Foundation’s improved services on campus and the exciting learning opportunities that enhance the educational experience of all CDM students:

• The Learning Resource Center (LRC) replaced the outdated library, giving our students a welcoming place to study and work in collaborative groups before, between, and after classes.

• The Technology Center—home of the Robotics program—and other computer and technology equipment.

• The Sea King Connection Center/One on Campus Program - an arts-infused student support center.

• The renovated Health Center, Attendance Office, Main Quad and Gymnasiums.

• G W Mix is the CDM Foundation's Representative and Coordinator of the CDM Challenge Success Team. Mr. Mix in on the CDM Campus working with students as a mentor and advocate.

• College visits to CDM by more than 230 admission officers each year, a full-time College Programs Coordinator, Mrs. Mary Russell, and a full array of college programs.

In addition, The CDM Foundation provides grants to the science, math, and music departments.  These grants are used to fund teachers’ aides and purchase tools that your children use daily, such as Chromebooks, microscopes, Quizdom student response systems, Vex Robots, and musical instruments.

Community contributions to the CDM Foundation have helped make CDM a top tier school.  We realize that you receive many requests for support and must prioritize your commitments. You can feel secure that your donation will go to enhancing and enriching the culture at CDM. These funds have a direct impact on each of our children and the quality of education they receive.  We are asking you to consider donating to the CDM Foundation before the end of the 2019 calendar year.

As a guideline, we recommend a donation of $750 per year/per child and to make a multi-year pledge.  However, we appreciate any donation your family is comfortable making, as we are striving to increase overall participation from our community! The CDM Foundation is a nonprofit 501 (c) organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Donors are recognized on our annual banner and on our website. Cumulative donations and pledges that exceed $10,000 are recognized on the permanent Lifetime Donor Board outside the gymnasium.
