Ways To Donate
The Power of You!
It is your generosity that allows LPIE to support high-quality public education for our children.
LPIE is committed to making academic excellence and innovation a reality for Lafayette's 4,900 public school students by filling the gap left by inadequate public funding. Thanks to the generous contributions of parents and community members like you, LPIE funds an impressive array of academic and enrichment programs and services for Lafayette school children.
For the sixth straight year, LPIE's fundraising success means increased financial support at every grade level. Our 2019-20 commitment is $4.5 million to our K-12 students.
LPIE requests $1300 per child in TK-8th Grade OR $1000 per student at Acalanes. Opportunities to champion your child's education at a higher level include:
Becoming an Major Donor with a contribution of $5000 or more.
Joining LPIE's Leaders Circle by giving ($1,500 (or $200 or more above the suggested donation) per child.
If you cannot give the full amount, please consider making a contribution in any amount. All donations are appreciated and make a difference.
