Event Sponsorship

Benefit from great exposure while helping our students achieve their lifelong goals.

Each year CLEF offers business partners the chance to put their brand on high visibility community events. These fun, community-wide events provide great exposure for businesses while providing college scholarships for low-income students.

Other annual events include the Teacher & Support Employee of the Year Celebration and our annual scholarship reception.

Florida License Plate

For every Florida License for Learning plate sold to a vehicle owner in Charlotte County, $20 of the purchase goes directly to CLEF. That means proceeds from the plates registered here will stay right here in our community to help public school students.
