With the power of your gift, we will ignite learning!

The Education Foundation invites you to join us and become a member of our Employee Giving family today. Every staff member and board member of the Foundation believes in our mission and are personal donors. 100% of your donation powers Lake County Schools. The Foundation serves as the direct support organization for Lake County Schools and has been doing so for 35 years! Also, noteworthy that the Education Foundation of Lake County has been named in the Top 50 Education Foundations for the United States and has been awarded the Guidestar Platinum Seal of Transparency for 3 years running. 

We are here to serve the students and teachers in our district. You may wonder, how do we do that? By offering supplies, grants and programs that assist our teachers and staff. Last year alone the Foundation invested $1,115,790 back into our schools. This resulted in 33,254 students and 1,848 teachers being directly impacted by the work that the Foundation does. But we can’t do it alone. As we launch the annual Employee Giving Campaign for the 2022-23 school year, we are asking that you consider signing up for payroll deductions. Since we are celebrating our 35th year, we would love to see you invest $3 or $5 per paycheck or perhaps give a one-time donation of $35. Employees can submit their completed forms to the Foundation via JackRabbit or mail to us at 2045 Pruitt St., Leesburg FL 34748.

For this year’s campaign video, it was important to showcase those that give and have seen the impact of the Foundation. We ask that you join us. The contribution will come directly out of your paycheck and will be sent to the Foundation. This may not seem like much, but it can make a huge difference, and together we can power public education.
