Research has shown that a small donation can have a big impact on a child’s education and we collaborate with LEF, Inc. advocates who will join us in transforming the futures of Lawnside students.  Since 2013, the LEF, Inc. has raised $50,000 for the Lawnside Elementary School Media Center, supported its back to school activities, and has recently started our teacher instructional grant program.  Our next step is the purchase of the school's first 3-D computer, and to establish an endowment fund for long-term support of the district!  These are major milestones for our young, community-based foundation, and the students continue to benefit from the generosity of donors locally and throughout the country.

The Board of Trustees has established the following areas to fund as we engage the LEF community in contributing to the academic well-being of our students:

Media Center


Music and Arts Programs

Extended Day programs

Endowment Fund

Summer Reading

Annual programs and activities
