Julie Wright, who served as the Chamberlin Family Foundation’s Executive Director from 2011 until 2018, passed away on March, 5, 2020.

Julie was a tireless champion for education for all children, regardless of their background or circumstances.  She inspired all of us at the foundation, and in this community, to work toward educational equity and excellence.  We will miss her, and we will continue to honor her memory in our ongoing work to improve education for West Contra Costa students.

A celebration of Julie’s life will be held later this Spring. We will share more information with those of you who knew and worked with Julie when we have it.

We extend our sincere condolences to Julie’s family, and to those across our community and elsewhere who are celebrating her life and legacy with us.
