Designate your contribution to help students or faculty, build great facilities, fund curriculum or equipment needs or expand Lenawee County instructional performance. Make a program or fund specific gift through the selection of one of the following LCEF sponsored programs.
Student Scholarships – Student scholarships represent the LCEF’s single largest area of student support. In 2009, the LCEF awarded $231,250 through 281 separate student scholarships. Student scholarships provide Lenawee County students and families with financial support that assists them in pursuing higher education. Scholarship eligibility varies and is generally established by the donor.
Teacher Mini-Grants – As school budgets tighten, Lenawee County school districts have found it more and more difficult to provide essential services, let alone providing funding for innovative instructional resources for teachers, their classrooms and students. In partnership with United Bank and Trust, the LCEF has created the teacher mini-grant program to provide funding (up to $500) to Lenawee County teachers and student support personnel to assist them in pursuing innovative projects or programs that would not otherwise be feasible.
Lenawee Intermediate School District – The Lenawee Intermediate School District (LISD) is Lenawee County’s regional education service provider.
