The Lansing Educational Foundation enhances the excellence in the learning environment in partnership with the schools and the community.

Your donation matters!

The Lansing Educational Foundation would not be able to provide the funding to Lansing Schools without our donors. 

Since it was unified in 1965, Lansing School District has been a leader in student success with a well-documented, remarkable record of achievement.

Established in 2004, Lansing Educational Foundation strives to engage community members and businesses in support of Lansing Public Schools and the academic achievement of all students.

Each year, the Lansing Educational Foundation awards grants to classroom teachers, buildings, and district wide projects. The Lansing Educational Foundation partners with the community in celebrating educational achievements at the annual Honors Awards Breakfast in May.  We also support the arts through our Annual Lansing District Art Showcase that directly benefits the art classrooms across the district. Over $33,000 was granted from our foundation to directly support students and teachers for the 2018-2019 school year. A complete listing of our awarded grants can be found here.

These programs would not be possible without your generous support. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to our foundation. We are now accepting donations through PayPal. If you shop on Amazon, please also consider using Amazon Smile and selecting Lansing Educational Foundation as your charity of choice.

We thank you in advance for your contribution. Your contribution is a gift to the educational growth of our young people’s future!



Thank you to all the students who entered our debit card art contest! The winner will be announced by February 1, 2019.
