What is CLIPCO? The Cupertino Language Immersion Program Community Organization Non-profit 501(3)c
CLIPCO is a non-profit foundation Our biggest goal is to raise money to pay for your child’s bilingual education (program needs), as CUSD does not pay for the Chinese portion. We DO NOT decide on what to fund – we just raise the money for the priorities created by the CAC (CLIP Advisory Committee) CLIPCO also provides community events to bring our CLIP families together. What does CLIPCO do?
