The Lakewood Educational Foundation invests in the students of Lakewood Public Schools by providing the extras for education through funding classroom grants. Grants are written by dedicated Lakewood educators who pursue creative ways to enhance their classrooms and then apply to LEF for funds. Since 2003, more than $325,000 has been awarded for educational experiences, enrichment materials, learning programs and technology. Many grants have a long term impact as they can be utilized year after year.

In the fall of 2016, grants were awarded totaling just over $50,000 -- our largest total to date. We thank everyone in the Lakewood Public Schools community who has partnered with us through gifts of time and funds to make this amazing accomplishment possible. With your committed support, the Lakewood Educational Foundation can continue to empower Lakewood students for success.
