WITHOUT FUNDRAISING our schools are facing an estimated budget shortfall of over $650,000. THIS YEAR all of our fundraising for the 21/22 school year is through direct donation, as we have been unable to hold in-person events.
THE HARSH REALITY is that we have to bridge the gap in funding with our SPRING KEEP! campaign. We all need to do our part and help fund critical programs.
Teachers are losing their jobs - The district will layoff almost 5 full-time equivalent staff at Loma and CTE schools.
Children are losing programs - STEAM, middle school electives, art, library services, and more in elementary and middle school.
Education technology support is being reduced at a time when everything is almost 100% online.
COVID regulations for safe return to school has impacted school operations, increased demands on staff and administration.
Inadequate state funding and loss of annual community funding - parcel tax revenues of $328,000+
Choose between a one time donation or a monthly donation.
The LPEF Keep Excellent Education Program (KEEP!) is our primary direct giving campaign which raises over half of the LPEF annual budget. The LPEF budget exists to fund critical academic programs at both C.T. English Middle and Loma Prieta Elementary schools.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE. While we are maintaining our recommended donation of $1000 for the first child, and $1,500 for two or more children attending our schools, any size donation is appreciated and is incredibly important in maintaining these critical academic programs for our children.
