The Lexington Education Foundation (LEF) supports the excellence of Lexington Public Schools through grants that fund innovative pedagogy, curricular enrichment, professional development, new uses of technology, and community building in all nine schools.
LEF is a not-for-profit organization that relies on contributions from the community to fund these efforts. Grant proposals undergo a rigorous review by LEF to ensure that we maximize the impact of every dollar we receive in contributions from individuals and businesses.

LEF’s activities rely almost exclusively on volunteers from our community. Please consider joining us; even if you only have a few hours to volunteer, it can make a huge impact. (Click here to volunteer…)
