Lafayette Education Foundation Endowed Fund
Lafayetted Education Foundation was created in 1989, in large part, through a vision to capitalize on state funds in a dollar to dollar matching program. While that state funding is now gone, our original mission remains steadfast: to provide grants to teachers for innovative learning projects, directly to the classroom.
LEF is grateful to our endowment contributors:
$100,000 Named Endowments
Acadian Ambulance Service
LEF currently maintains an endowed fund of $1.4 million. We've wisely invested our funds, as interest generated from these funds goes directly to classrooms:
Today our mission has expanded to include recognition for teachers of excellence, as well as many other educational programs directed toward the lifelong learning experience. Because as community leaders, like our endowment supporters, we fully understand the importance and the impact of quality education on our economy and our parish's future.
Your investment in LEF can mean the continuation and growth of these valuable projects. Your One contribution can provide new hope and promise for the future of our community.
One school, One teacher, and One student at a time.
