Mission

The Lucille Glass Mauzy Foundation is a non-profit volunteer organization that raises funds to support special education students in Central Contra Costa County. These students attend the Lucille Glass Mauzy School in Alamo or one of its satellite classrooms throughout central Contra Costa County.

Our schools serve approximately 120 students with moderate to severe developmental disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, mental retardation, severe speech and language delays, and visual and hearing impairments.

Services

The main purpose of the Foundation is to raise funds to purchase special educational materials and provide classroom enrichment. Our largest program is music therapy.

We provide music therapy for the students on the Mauzy campus in Alamo and in satellite classrooms in Concord, Danville, and Lafayette. We also fund art for the elementary school students.




 

Fundraising

In addition to membership dues, the Mauzy Foundation holds a few smaller fundraisers during the year including See’s Candy and Flower Power.

In September 2017 we are hosting our first auction at Round Hill Country Club with musical entertainment by the wonderful local students of Monte Vista Choir and some talented young pianists from the Bay Area Music Society. There will be silent auction items and we will finish up with a DJ and dancing.

The money from our fundraisers goes to our music and art programs which cost approximately $14,000 annually. We then award approximately $5,000 in other classroom materials to the teachers and therapists.
