    Classroom and School Impact Grants Program:

    With help from several great sponsors, LEF is excited to provide funding for sixteen Grant programs this school year. These grants touch on a number of subjects, whether it's providing students with books to match their personal interests or teaching 800 students how to develop a school newspaper, each of these programs are bound to have a positive outcome. LEF looks forward to working with these teachers and reporting success stories throughout the year.
