The Lafourche Education Foundation (LEF) was founded in 1997 by local residents and business leaders who recognize that the strength of the community depends on the enrichment of public education. LEF’s mission is to raise and invest funds for charitable purposes that support, improve and advance public education in Lafourche Parish, LA.
We believe that our children deserve life-changing educational experiences that provide them with the skills and confidence needed to succeed in college and beyond.
We believe that all K-12 Lafourche public school students benefit from the generosity of families and members of the community.
We believe that the entire parish benefits from a strong public education system.
