Torrance Education Foundation (TEF)

The Torrance Education Foundation promotes and supports academic excellence for pre-kindergarten through 12th grade students in the Torrance Unified School District. TEF recognizes outstanding teachers and education contributors, develops strategic alliances with business organizations, parents and the community; nurtures innovation and curiosity; and champions an inspirational, well-rounded education for all young people served by the TUSD.


TEF Mission: To enrich the educational experience for students of the Torrance Unified School District.


TEF Vision: The Torrance Education Foundation is an essential link between the Torrance community and our students’ educational experience.


Our generous Torrance donor community has made it possible for Torrance Education Foundation (TEF) to contribute in excess of $4 million in support of our TUSD and schools. Since 1992, TEF has been partnering with our District and Educators to ensure Torrance students have as many advantages as we can give them for educational success, enrichment, and extension. In the past five years, with contributions both large and small, TEF has supported key innovative and creative undertakings that are shaping students’ learning experiences.
