How the Foundation Helps
What does the Foundation do?
Our district is one of the most coveted school districts in California. Our award winning schools, outstanding enrichment programs, and strong community support all make the Las Lomitas School District an exceptional environment for children to flourish. Maintaining this standard of excellence requires annual community support.
Our District's funding sources, primarily property taxes, have been insufficient to provide the educational excellence that we parents desire and our children deserve. Property tax only covers 70% of the district’s operating budget.
The Foundation raises funds to close the gap between the increasingly expensive cost of high quality education and existing public funding. The Foundation is a non-profit, 100% volunteer-based organization, and it represents the district’s second largest source of revenue. Funds donated from parents, staff and the community help provide the following benefits to the children’s education.
