Friends of Ericson Foundation

This Foundation was formed by a group of parents and community members to raise funds to support educationally enriching programs at Ericson.


We coordinated fundraising efforts at local restaurants with our Vittles for Vikings, the Holiday Vendor Fair, and Jog-A-Thon. We have great success due to the dedicated support of all Ericson parents, teachers, community support, and fundraising sponsors. Thank you to everyone who supports our children through Friends of Ericson Foundation events. To learn more, go to:

Last year the Foundation had multiple successful fundraising events, with Jog-A-Thon raising an astounding $28, 000! As a result we have been able to support the site with the Eureka Math program for all students. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, families, and volunteers, the Friends of Ericson Annual Jog-a-thon raised a record breaking amount in 2018-2019. This will allow us to continue to provide subsidized after school enrichment programs, in-class academic resources, and to support school enhancement initiatives in partnership with the administration. Thanks to all of our sponsors for supporting us in our mission to provide enriching educational experiences for the students at Ericson Elementary. Our sponsors inculde Custom Logs, J.D. Israel construction, Mission Federal Credit Union, Rockin Jump, Sorrento Dental Care Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Which Wich Superior Sandwiches, CRDN The Textile Experts, Fuddruckers, Natural Networks, Inc., and ServiceMaster by Rapid Response. The Friends of Ericson would like to give a special thanks to the U.S. Marines of MCAS Miramar and Camp Pendleton for voluneering their time and positive attitudes that make this event so special.
