The Los Gatos Education Foundation (LGEF) is a parent-run non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to ensuring the highest quality programs and resources are available to the school children of Los Gatos. Since 1983, LGEF has raised millions of dollars to support excellence in Science, Math, Art (visual and performance) and Technology (SMART). And in times of financial crisis, LGEF has been the only local organization to preserve teachers and help maintain smaller class sizes. Without LGEF, it would be impossible to have a comprehensive K-8 music and visual art curriculum. In addition, LGEF funds the teachers who ensure that science and technology are fully incorporated into classroom lessons and arm teachers with differentiated learning plans for advanced students.
We cannot do all of this without your financial support. Please go to www.lgef.org to help continue the highest quality public education in Los Gatos!
