Forward the Foundation: Local Education Foundations Offer an Alternative Source for School Funding
Brooks-Young, Susan
Technology & Learning, v27 n9 p40 Apr 2007
February's column "Going Corporate" discussed ideas for approaching private foundations for funding. Some districts take this idea several steps further by partnering with the community and local businesses to establish a not-for-profit foundation, or local education foundation (LEF). It probably comes as no surprise that the idea of forming a LEF appears to be more popular during tight economic times, but is it worth the time and effort required to get something like this off the ground? This article gives a quick overview of what a LEF is and how it can provide supplemental funds.
