Who we are and why you should help

The Longmeadow Educational Excellence Foundation (LEEF) is a non-profit organization founded by a group of dedicated parents in 2001. LEEF is both a fundraising organization and a grant-making organization, comprised of volunteers from our community who share a common passion for extraordinary public school education. We conduct fundraising events throughout the year. Funds raised through our efforts are then awarded for innovative programs and projects proposed by teachers in formal grant submissions. Support from the entire community is critical to LEEF's success. Please consider supporting LEEF with your time, your talent, or with a monetary donation.

Our Mission

At LEEF, our mission is to create and maintain a fund for the benefit of Longmeadow Public School students. This fund provides grants, beyond the tax-supported budget, for innovative education and enrichment programs. LEEF is an autonomous, established institution that not only strives to ensure the excellence of Longmeadow Public Schools but also to instill a sense of equity and pride within the community.

How you can help LEEF

Attend and support our events – volunteer your time – lend your expertise, talent, and ideas – make a monetary contribution

Please join us and actively support LEEF in whatever manner you can. Contact us for more information on how to put your talents to work for LEEF.

Your Support is Vital

It's a fact. We cannot provide grants without funds. So, that is where you come in. We are asking you to become a contributor to LEEF. We are painfully aware that there are many deserving organizations competing for your contributions. However, LEEF positively impacts your child's education experience. To minimize the impact of fundraising on you, we have a long-term strategy designed to build a self-sustaining endowment that will fund the annual grants. But in the short term, we must request contributions twice a year through our Gala and Phonathon – and leave the door open through our direct contribution programs. LEEF appreciates every gift, large or small. Your thoughtfulness and generosity will be appreciated by the children, their teachers and our schools.
