We are so grateful to live in a place that prioritizes our students and values public education. LPIE was founded more than 40 years ago by dedicated parents and community members wanting to protect access to arts and sciences education. Today we are thrilled to invite you to build a legacy for generations to come through the LPIE Endowment campaign.
Today, LPIE supports students at all six Lafayette public schools in areas including mental health services; exploration through electives such as robotics, woodshop, performing and visual arts, and world languages; and classroom support in math, sciences, reading, and more.
As the needs of our students and educators continues to evolve, so does the need for LPIE’s support. Our public schools need a long-term solution to the challenges caused by inconsistent funding provided by the state. The endowment will serve as a permanent fund to enhance and stabilize the future of LPIE's annual contribution to the Lafayette School District and Acalanes High School.
We invite you to join us in starting this movement and demonstrating our collective dedication to our students, educators, and schools! This is about more than the dollars raised; it is about coming together as a community.
The most important contribution the endowment will make is not the millions of dollars granted; it is ensuring that generations of students have the resources and opportunities to thrive — today, tomorrow, and beyond!
