2017 Grant Awards Announced!
Our favorite time of year is once again upon us..our 2017 LEEF Grant Awards have been finalized and announced! Thanks to the tremendous support of our community and sponsors, specifically via our Annual Gala and Phoneathon, we were able to award $71,271 in grants for the 2017 school year! That makes for one of our most successful grant awards ever and the highest in recent years!
A special thank you to our Grant Review Committee, which is comprised of current and former board members along with additional parent volunteers, all of whom donate a significant portion of their time to review grant proposals and collaborate with the teachers and administrators in all 6 of our Longmeadow Schools throughout the grant process.
Since its inception in 2001, LEEF has worked tirelessly to raise and donate over 1.2 million dollars to fund sixteen years worth of grants for student enrichment by partnering with the exceptional staff and teachers of the Longmeadow Public School District. We continue to be extremely impressed with the enthusiastic response by both teachers and administrators and the quality of the proposals submitted. All proposals undergo an extensive evaluation process, including a full review by a committee and formal approval by the full LEEF board. These grants make a significant impact on the education of our students and we now look forward to seeing each grant implemented.
