Thanks to generous donations from Lakewood residents and businesses, LEF has funded hundreds of improvements in Lakewood schools since 2003 through grants of up to $500. These grants provided technology as well as books of all kinds and reading levels to assist in the teaching and learning process.

Many years there aren't enough funds to fulfill all the worthy grant requests that LEF receives for Lakewood classroom projects. That’s why your support would be so welcome this year.

How to donate

You can donate directly by making out a check to the Lakewood Education Foundation and mailing it to LEF, c/o Lakewood City Hall, 5050 Clark Avenue, Lakewood, CA 90712. Donations are tax deductible.
