LANCASTER COUNTY VIRGINIA EDUCATION FOUNDATION
Our Mission: To enhance and advocate for educational excellence and expanded learning opportunities for students in Lancaster County Public Schools by supporting students and instructional staff with private funding and resources.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION
Founded in 2006, Lancaster County Virginia Education Foundation is a community non-profit 501(c)(3) committed to enhance student learning through supplementing the local public school budget with private funding.
The children who are educated in the Lancaster County Public Schools are the future of Lancaster County. Regardless of the careers they pursue they will be more productive if well-educated and
prepared. The more productive they are the more they will return to the community in taxes, charitable giving, and community service. Some will become attorneys, physicians, nurses, business owners, farmers, watermen, teachers, skilled technicians, public servants, but all will benefit from the strongest education we can provide. What better investment could we make in OUR future than to strive for excellence in our county's public education system?
Together we CAN make a difference!
