Founded in 1999 and incoroprated in 2001, the Lawndale Elementary School District Educational Foundation was organized to expand the educational offerings available to Lawndale students. Through a mini grant program that is offered to staff each year, the foundation has been able to fund extraordinary projects and activities that heighten academic excellence. To date, the foundation has provided more than $300,000 in funding.
Since founding, our vision for student success and enrichment has only gotten stronger. Through partnerships with community organizations, such as Lawndale Rotary, the foundation has been able to support programs such as Vision to Learn, which offers free vision screenings and eyeglasses to our students.
Moving forward, we hope to expand our presence in the community and continually develop partnerships in the effort to impact student learning and heighten the academic excellence of the students in our community.
"The Lawndale Elementary School District Educational Foundation Grant provided students a unique learning experience. Some students have a newfound interest in robotics and programming. All students improved their thinking and programming skills. It’s wonderful to hear students say, “This is so fun!” not even realizing how much they are learning and growing."
