"We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give."
Public charter schools — Just like traditional public schools, public charters like CLCS schools are funded by the State of California. But, like our state public education at all levels — preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and higher education — state funding has been declining, inconsistent and precarious in recent years.
Tax-deductible gifts — Each of the public charter schools operated by CLCS have 501(c)(3) educational foundations eligible to receive tax-deductible contributions for the academic and enrichment programs offered at the schools.

Community Learning Center Schools, Inc. is the nonprofit corporation that manages the 6-12 Alameda Community Learning Center (ACLC) and the K-12 Nea Community Learning Center (Nea), both charter schools in Alameda, California. The CLCS schools are based on an educational model of learner empowerment. CLCS is actively engaged in disseminating this model by school creation and redesign.
CLCS’s mission is to provide corporate leadership, conceptual oversight, and business and legal services to the CLCS charter school Governing Boards. CLCS charter schools serve as educational models that empower all youth to take ownership of their educational experience, to celebrate their diverse community, and to actively participate as members in a democratic society.
