The Lawrence Schools Foundation is committed to enriching
the education provided to all students by the Lawrence Public
Schools. Through the generation and management of gifts,
we seek to promote and enhance:
•	 A	strong	relationship	between	our	community	and	the	
   Lawrence Public Schools
•	 Innovative	teaching-learning	opportunities,	the	recognition	
   of teachers, and development of staff
•	 Effective	early	childhood	programs
•	 Recognition	and	encouragement	of	student	achievements

VISION To provide the Lawrence Public Schools, its students,
and its teachers with funding to enhance educational
opportunities and to help achieve a level of excellence in
public education unsurpassed in the nation.

VALUES Every child deserves an excellent education.
The Lawrence Schools Foundation exists to ensure excellence
and enhance the vital role the Lawrence Public Schools play in
our community’s overall success.

The mission of the Lawrence Education Achievement Partners
(LEAP) is to create and foster effective community partnerships
that support and enrich student achievement and success in the
Lawrence Public Schools.

VISION Through the Lawrence Education Achievement Partners,
businesses/organizations	and	schools	form	mutually-beneficial	
partnerships that support the schools, their partners, and the

VALUES Participation in the LEAP program shall be open
to any business, service club, school, government agency,
neighborhood	association,	non-profit	and	faith-based	
organization, community group, or individual that has a
commitment to the mission and purpose of this program.
The LEAP program is founded on the principles of equal
opportunity for all children.

Private donations provided more than $1 million in direct program support for our public schools last year
through the Lawrence Schools Foundation and the Lawrence Education Achievement Partners (LEAP) program.
It’s	a	little	scary	to	consider	what	our	public	schools	would	look	like	without	this	community	support.	
People want to live here — raise their children, build their businesses, and retire here. We know that having
strong,	nationally-ranked	public	schools	is	a	key	factor	to	those	choosing	Lawrence	as	their	home.		

You get it — you understand that tax dollars and a “suitable” education for our children aren’t enough.
With your contributions, the Foundation helped our students receive an excellent educational experience.
Thank	you	for	believing,	as	we	do,	that	everybody	benefits	from	great	public	schools!

   and managed, later reporting that they had not
   only learned important life lessons, but had
   “orchestrated community togetherness.”

   “We understand the connection between great
   schools and healthy, vibrant communities. As a
   Lawrence business with community roots, we
   take our commitment to the Lawrence Public
   Schools seriously.” Nancy O’Connor, Director
   of Education and Outreach of The Community

   Junior	High	eighth-graders	in	the	school	garden.

“ One of the essential components of a successful community is that it has a solid educational
  infrastructure. When we talk with site location consultants, they often cite a community’s
  educational infrastructure as a key factor in a company deciding to locate in a specific
  community. In Lawrence’s case, we have a great educational infrastructure with USD 497 and
  our higher education partners at KU, Haskell Indian Nations University, and Baker University.”
