Our Impact

“The Lawrence Township Education Foundation continues to push our staff to think outside the box as they fund projects that have a direct impact on our schools and our students. Without their support, we would not be able to move into the future as quickly as we have been able to.” Jay Billy, Principal, Ben Franklin Elementary School
