Established in 1996, the Los Angeles County Education Foundation (LACEF) is a 501(c)3 that strives to bridge education and health together to serve the unique needs of underserved children and youth of Los Angeles. Throughout our longstanding history, LACEF has been dedicating financial and human resources to bring learning opportunities alive for the next generation in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), school districts, policymakers, nonprofit organizations, corporations and charities.
LACEF strives to fulfill our unique mission to:
- Address the needs of underserved children and teens;
- Remove barriers in the path of children and teens that limit their ability to learn, grow, live healthy, mature and prosper;
- Broaden learning opportunities beyond the classroom and expand specialized education experiences in science and the environment; and
- Partner with key stakeholders to successfully achieve our goal of helping kids get the most out of their education and help them prepare to be productive and self-supporting adults.
At LACEF, we INVEST in the future of our children; we BELIEVE that every child is worthy; and we CHAMPION on behalf of children and youth – society’s greatest asset!
