About the Linwood Education Foundation

The Linwood Education Foundation (LEF) is a community-based cooperative effort organized to identify, secure, and distribute resources to supplement and enhance the quality of education in Linwood Public Schools. This is accomplished by working with the Superintendent and Board of Education to identify educational needs within the district. As a tax-exempt, non-profit organization, all contributions made to our foundation are tax-deductible.


What projects has LEF funded?

LEF raises funds throughout the year to award grants through our Annual Teacher Grant Program every Spring. LEF also presents a yearly Eighth Grade Technology Award and the Frank Rudnesky Renaissance Leadership Award to deserving graduating Belhaven students. Grants are for programs and equipment for both Schools and have included white boards, computers, instruments and wireless internet access for Belhaven and the Linwood Arboretum.

Thank you !
