Our Teachers and Students Need Your Help

Make An Online Donation

As a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Loudoun Education Foundation can accept gifts of cash, stock, facilities, equipment, and supplies. And rest assured, your donation will go to supporting programs and events that benefit the students and teachers and enhance the educational experience in the classroom. So please contribute what you can. Every dollar does make a difference.

Loudoun County has one of the finest public school systems in the United States. However, stressed state and county budgets – coupled with increasing enrollments and several new schools – means that tax dollars do not offer the extra opportunities that elevate a good education to an excellent one. Now more than ever, your contribution to the Loudoun Education Foundation provides students and teachers in Loudoun’s public schools with additional support for excellence in education beyond what tax dollars can achieve.

Your donation to LEF will have a dramatic impact on the students and teachers of Loudoun County Public Schools. In its first year of existence, the Loudoun Education Foundation raised just $400. Twenty years later, the Foundation has given over $1.5 million to support innovative education and learning programs that strengthen the quality of the public school system.

Donate To LEF-LCPS Backpack Coalition

The LEF-LCPS Backpack Coalition Program is to ensure no child goes hungry.

Although the Backpack Buddies program at area schools helps feed many hungry students over weekends and breaks, the County’s current programs are only funded to support 40% of families in need. LCPS and LEF are working with the LEF-LCPS Backpack Coalition to fill that gap, but donations from community businesses are essential to its success.

The LEF-LCPS Backpack Coalition helps to fill the gap between individual schools’ Backpack Buddies programs and county programs that currently support only 40% of families in need. The non-profit organization 100WomenStrong has committed to match each dollar donated to the Loudoun Education Foundation to support children not currently covered, up to $100,000.
