Discover the Los Gatos Education Foundation (LGEF), an organization dedicated to enriching the educational experience of students in our community. LGEF plays a crucial role in funding essential teachers and staff at Blossom Hill, Daves Avenue, Lexington, Louise Van Meter, and RJ Fisher schools, ensuring a well-rounded education for all.
What LGEF Funds: Through generous donations, LGEF supports additional teachers and staff in Los Gatos schools. These devoted educators are instrumental in providing a comprehensive and nurturing learning environment for our children.
Empowering Art Education: LGEF collaborates with Art Docents of Los Gatos, a remarkable volunteer-based community organization that delivers visual arts education to both Elementary and Middle School students. Art Docents volunteers invest over 2,145 hours annually to engage kids with hands-on workshops, art appreciation, and art theory, following a well-established curriculum.
Bridging the Funding Gap: Los Gatos schools receive comparatively less funding per student from state and federal sources than similar schools. LGEF plays a vital role in "filling the gap" by providing support for teachers and staff who play a pivotal role in the holistic development of our children.
A Rich History of Giving Back: Founded in 1982 during a challenging state budget crisis, LGEF has contributed over $16 million to Los Gatos schools since its inception. This has left a lasting positive impact on the lives of students.
Join Us in Making a Difference: As a volunteer-run, 501c3 non-profit organization, LGEF welcomes community members who share our commitment to ensuring a high-quality education for our children. Together, we can create a brighter future for the next generation.
Serving Our Local Schools: LGEF grants support students at Blossom Hill, Daves Avenue, Lexington, Louise Van Meter elementary schools, and RJ Fisher Middle School, ensuring that every child receives the best educational opportunities.
Strong Partnerships: Grateful for our local and bay area LGEF Business Sponsors, the dedicated Home & School Clubs at Blossom Hill, Daves Avenue, RJ Fisher, Lexington, and Van Meter, as well as the LGUSD Superintendent and Board of Trustees. Their unwavering support helps shape the success of LGEF.
Together, Let's Empower Education: As a united community, we have the power to make a significant impact on the education of our children. Learn how you can contribute or attend our board meetings by contacting [email protected].
