Building a Brighter Future, One Gift at a Time

As we enter a new school year, I want to share encouraging news about the work you made possible in the last school year. The most exciting news is the amount we were able to raise last year to close the gap between what the La Cañada Unified School District receives from the State of California and what we need for our kids to thrive. 

Thanks to your generosity, we will be giving $2.3M to the La Cañada Unified School District for their 2023-24 school year, empowering our District to continue its focus on providing academic excellence.

Throughout the last school year, you helped pay for the salaries of our elementary drama, art, music, and Spanish teachers. You also provided funding for advances in technology needs and the expansion of a dedicated 7/8 Wellness Center suite with a full-time licensed clinician and a Wellness Support staff person for our middle school students. We were also able to maintain small class sizes, allowing optimal learning and growth in the classroom. Most importantly, you also helped the District add more counselors and licensed therapists across all campuses to ensure the emotional and social well-being of our kids.

Building a brighter future, one gift at a time, has been our motto, and your support has truly exemplified this sentiment. Together, we have created opportunities for our students that will have a lasting impact on their lives.

While we have much to be thankful for in the past school year, with your help, we can sustain all of our programs and offerings that distinguish our schools from other high-performing school districts. With your continued support, our District will be able to provide an education that is robust, rigorous, and individualized to our students’ specific needs.

We are overwhelmed with gratitude for you and the difference you have made in our children’s lives. Together, I look forward to building on the successes of last year and making a positive impact in 2023-24!

ABOUT THE ENDOWMENT

The LCFEF Endowment Fund helps keep the schools financially secure during times of financial difficulty.

During the U.S. fiscal crisis of 2008/09, donations to the Educational Foundation dropped at the same time that public school funding from the State of California decreased. To help, the Endowment Fund gifted the maximum allowed by its bylaws and even revised its bylaws to ensure that it could still make a gift, despite the decrease in the Endowment's assets.

 

During less critical times, the Endowment fund may not make the maximum allowable gift in order to grow its assets and plan for the future.

Support Our Local Businesses

Nurturing local businesses is essential for the success and sustainability of our schools and community. When you choose to buy goods or services from nearby establishments, you not only help to create job opportunities and strengthen the local economy, but also foster a sense of solidarity and connectedness within the community.

Your support for these businesses plays a vital role in the growth and vibrancy of our neighborhoods. 

Please check out our list of businesses that actively support our schools and community, and join us in reciprocating their support by patronizing them.

Together, we can help build a stronger, more prosperous community that benefits everyone.
