WHO ARE WE?
The Bronco Foundation membership is made up of parents and dedicated CNEC staff members. As a recognized 501(3)c non-profit, we provide the legal and organizational backbone for coordinating the parent and community fundraising on campus, as well as volunteer opportunities. In fact, all of the fundraising and volunteer efforts of over 80 of our school's athletics, arts, and academic member groups fall under our umbrella, and hence, under our watch. We are akin to elementary school Parent Teacher Clubs, but on a much greater scale.
WHAT DO WE DO?
We provide support to all Clovis North students, faculty, and the entire school community. By furnishing and maintaining state-of -the-art technology and cutting-edge programs, the Foundation promotes personal growth, leadership and independence for ALL students. We do this through fundraising and volunteer efforts, especially via our annual Bronco Stampede and profits from the Foundation-run Student Store on campus. Since its inception, the Foundation has funded hundreds of thousands of dollars towards technology, academic and co-curricular programs, equipment, and support services.

A Year-End Update from the Board (12/21/17)
We kicked off the year with our Annual Grant Giving last January, and we are looking forward to doing it again soon. It's an exciting time for us to distribute our funds to classes, groups, and teams at Clovis North. Last year we gave out over $50,000 - not too shabby! Some of our many grants included anatomical mannequins for the science department, countless uniforms for multiple teams, a grand piano truck dolly for the choir department, and a facelift for the library.
In June, we hosted another successful Bronco Sober Grad Night Party. Over 300 seniors attended a safe, all-night party at Dave and Busters following their graduation ceremony. As the sole sponsor/organizer of this event, the Foundation was proud to send our graduates out of the stable in style. We also awarded Bronco Foundation scholarships to many well-deserving seniors.
Our board was very busy in August preparing and organizing Packet Pick Up and Walk Thru Registration. Thanks to our partnership with the Clovis North administration, we are the only school in our district to complete the monumental task of 7-12th grade registration in one day! Following this event, we hosted our annual Back to School Luncheon for staff.
Speaking of parties, the Stampede in September proved once again that our parents really know to celebrate and support our school. Over 600 parents, staff, and supporters joined us for our annual amazing event under the stars - and you might want to mark your calendars now for next year's Stampede, set for September 22, 2018, again at the beautiful Panoche Creek River Ranch.
Last month, the Bronco Foundation sponsored the first ever Bronco College Application Day for our seniors. Our counseling team brought in every single senior, and together they completed and submitted 100's of difficult college applications.
On top of these special events, the Bronco Foundation continues to run the Bronco Student Store, provide the bookkeeping and banking for every club and organization on campus, and support all Clovis North students, the faculty, and the entire school community. Happy holidays to all and thank you for your support!
