used as tools for outreach I mean those kids are in season up to ease here we
have because the education Education Foundation awards more than
$70,000 in corporate sponsor teacher grades to the Education Foundation
grants available to purchase many different things from a classroom those
include lasers plasma balls we have not a panic system our school struggles with
fundraising it’s very difficult for us to find the money for to fund creative
project outside of the typical leads that we have during the school day and
so through the end foundation we are able to provide access to materials
programs and in some cases electronic devices for students that we would never
be able to provide the teacher grant program is just one of many way the
Education Foundation helps LCS without surveys done which features been between
300 and 400 dollars a year out of their pocket in the founders of the nation
didn’t want that meeting money to be the barrier to Innovation Center tools for
schools warehouse which provides a new way for companies to donate new and used
items that can be used by teachers and school is a place where we receive
donations also belong to a group some nonprofit reading materials at a
greatly reduced costs so we can purchase items through this network these small

city schools Education Foundation awards scholarships a team has put together to
review the applications and select the recipients of scholarships they can
cover anything from tuition books and fees and every spring foundation holds
breakfast with the superintendent an event that highlights unique else he has
programs from local businesses and community members none of these programs
will be possible without the help of corporate sponsors and private donations

payroll deduction every every two weeks to support the work that they do I think
it’s important that as a employee of Lynchburg city schools that
