What We Do
The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools is a separate, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps channel private resources to student needs in our public schools. The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools is governed by a volunteer board of directors and supported financially by alumni, businesses, parents, donors, Lincoln Public Schools employees, private foundations, and other members of the community.
Tax support pays for many education basics. However, additional resources are needed to provide the kind of top-notch education our children deserve. To further the goals of Lincoln Public Schools, the Foundation helps donors make tax deductible donations to programs and projects they are passionate about. Most public school districts in Nebraska and across the country have foundations like Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools.
Since inception, the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools has donated around $24 million to LPS for enhanced programs and critical needs.
