Dreams for Students,
Hopes for Teachers
The Lamar Educational Award Foundation and its volunteers provide resources not usually available to our students and teachers.
The Grant membership help us to:
The Lamar Educational Award Foundation supports programs and policies that help children grow up to become successful adults. We invest in programs that strengthen families, increase economic opportunity, transform struggling communities, and enhance social sector leaders who work with young people.
By making a gift today, you are
helping to provide our students
with the resources they need to
pursue their dreams.
Our grant-making is,
therefore, very selective.
Our work focuses on ensuring that kids have strong, supportive families; increasing economic opportunity; transforming struggling communities, and strengthening social sector leaders dedicated to improving the lives of young people. To those ends, we invest in innovative ideas, practices, and policies that have the potential to help millions thrive.
To help kids, we must invest in the parents who raise them and the neighborhoods where they live.
