Education funding today is a community challenge. The expression, “it take a village to raise a child” in regard to a well balance education including the latest tech software, to the arts and music programs. Leef inspires and continues to receive community support. Darby’s Story and Bangle Bear will be there to help and foster more!

So what is LEEF and do you have a program in your community?

“Who We Are”
The Lakeport Enhanced Education Foundation is a non-profit community-based organization established to provide financial support to education in Lakeport. Founded in 1992, LEEF was started by a small group of Lakeport residents who shared a common concern for funding education in the Lakeport community.

“What We Do”
The purpose of LEEF is to fund excellence in education and to broaden educational opportunities in Lakeport. Our emphasis is on public education in kindergarten through twelfth grade. LEEF’s grant program provides funding for educational enhancements as well as networking special projects. Particular attention has been given to district wide improvement and programs which otherwise would not exist or would operate at a lower level because of funding constraints.”Why We Are Needed”
It is increasingly difficult to ensure funding levels necessary to maintain educational excellence in Lakeport. In the face of budget constraints and mandates, the need for private investment in our public schools have never been greater. A grassroots effort such as LEEF is an effective way to maximize innovation in our schools and achieve educational opportunities.

“How We Will Do This”
LEEF believes that it is time for a broader and deeper support of education by the Lakeport community. LEEF raises funds from the local community, then returns the money to the Lakeport public schools through its grant program. Your involvement in LEEF can be your opportunity to contribute, in a positive and long-lasting way, to the children , the schools, and the community of Lakeport.
