This article was contributed by the E Cubed Foundation.

E Cubed Foundation was organized as a nonprofit in 2002 and has operated since then for the benefit of the San Benito County rural public schools. Families from the rural communities and the Woolpert Family Foundation were instrumental in getting the program up and going.

Through simple grants, K-8 students receive fine arts, life science and enrichment funds.

During the 2018-2019 school year, the students of Bitterwater-Tully School were able to produce a play “Spirit of America” while learning about American History. Jefferson Elementary School purchased keyboards and received music lessons. Southside Elementary School’s sixth-grade students did storytelling on “Animal Skins,” while Southside’s third-graders had a four-week workshop called “Garden and Design.”  These are a few of the grants obtained by our local schools.

Thanks to several trail rides hosted on local ranches, E Cubed has built an endowment with the Community Foundation for San Benito County. During San Benito Gives, donations to the endowment will be matched thanks to the Community Foundation and Monterey Peninsula Foundation, benefitting students in the rural schools.  Please consider a donation to bring music, fine arts and hands-on science to our local, rural school students. Without E Cubed, these courses would not be available to students in these small country schools.
