My name is Anna Niesley Fulton, president of the Lancaster-Lebanon Education Foundation (LLEF). The Lancaster-Lebanon Education Foundation is a charitable nonprofit organization. Our mission is to support the IU13 education community by enhancing learning opportunities and improving lives.
I’m thrilled with what we accomplished during the 2015-16 school year. We raised almost $8,000.00 through the Extraordinary Give event, and with those funds we were able to provide requested items for 18 families, helping to make their holidays a little brighter. I was fortunate enough to help deliver some of those items and it was an amazing experience. We were able to award over $2,600.00 through the Mini-Grant program which gave seed money to teachers, sponsored a chess tournament for 84 district students, and raised $4,400.00 to help support the Refugee Center at Reynolds Middle School. Over $6,000.00 was raised toward the Social Work fund to aid the families of IU13 students in all types of emergencies at home. And finally, a big thank you to everyone who attended our From the Heart Gift Basket Bingo event in April. We raised over $14,000.00 towards the purchase of assistive technology for IU13 student needs.
I am so excited for what is in store for the 2016-17 school year. Join us in raising money for the Donor’s Choice program through the Extraordinary Give. Learn more about the Mini-Grant program for IU13 teachers. If you are an IU13 employee, please consider supporting us through the Payroll Deduction program. And make sure to save the date for the upcoming From the Heart Gift Basket Bingo event April 2, 2017. Help us make this school year the best one yet!
I can’t thank you enough for your support. Please know that your support has helped us meet the needs of so many IU13 students and their families. Your thoughtfulness today makes a world of difference for learners tomorrow!
