Enhancing Public Education


Fostering educational excellence, creativity, and achievement in the Lawrence Township Public Schools


What we do…

By garnering private donations from individuals, local businesses, corporations and foundations we enable innovative projects to provide an exceptional learning environment.

Our goal is to fund programs that will have a substantial and lasting impact on Lawrence Township public school students. Working closely with teachers and administrators, we ensure the grants that we fund are closely aligned with the educational priorities of the school district. We strive to motivate educators to try new ideas, expand the classroom beyond four walls and create truly unique experiences for students.


Our Impact

Since 1992, we have awarded more than 850 grants for new programs and projects. These programs support diverse learning styles, stimulate critical and creative thinking, bring new technologies to our schools, and allow teachers to engage in meaningful professional development. In the 2018-2019 academic year, LTEF provided in excess of $267,000 to fund 70 of these grants.



Million Dollars

Thanks to contributions from community members, local businesses, corporations and foundations, we have been able to contribute more than $3.8 million to Lawrence Township Public Schools.

“The continued support of the Lawrence Township Education Foundation over the years has been remarkable. Their generosity has provided teachers with countless opportunities to enhance the educational experience for each student at LTPS, from their social-emotional development to every academic discipline.”
