Grants

LEEF grants offer many benefits

To date, LEEF has funded sixteen grant cycles, totaling over one million dollars. These grants benefit a broad spectrum of items - computer software and hardware, musical instruments, academic programs and materials, foreign language training, teacher training, and more.

LEEF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization whose 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. This allows LEEF to fund innovative educational projects outside of the normal school budget, including but not limited to (i) consultants, guest speakers, artists and performers, (ii) tuition and training related to teacher projects (including professional development); and (iii) equipment, materials, supplies required for specific projects.

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.
