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 learning more about our mission by visiting our website. 

 

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