The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that exists to raise funds to help pay for specialized teachers in STEAM+ subjects such as Science, Music, Art, Technology and Physical Education for the elementary schools in the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD). The DMSEF provides about half of the funding for these classes. Without it, these classes would not exist as they do today. The DMSEF board of directors is comprised of parent volunteers from the elementary schools in the district, usually two from each school. The DMSEF is committed to providing specialized instruction and thereby enriching the educational opportunities of every student in the Del Mar Union School District (DMUSD).
