ABOUT US

The Loma Public Education Fund (LPEF) was created in 2001 and exists solely to raise money for the Loma Prieta Joint Union School District.LPEF Governing board members are volunteer parents and community members that meet regularly with the LPJUSD superintendent, principal, teachers and parents to develop funding priorities for our two local schools - Loma Prieta Elementary school and C.T. English Middle school.

OUR MISSION

LPEF raises money for enrichment and enhancement of the education being offered at Loma Prieta Elementary and CT English Middle schools

OUR GOALS

Each year, our board meets with school officials to set funding goals and grant priorities. We gather information from parents using an online survey. This allows the LPEF to set priorities in line with parents, teachers and administrators, and communicate our goals for the school year.

FUNDRAISING

LPEF raises money by producing various fundraising events and organizing direct donation campaigns. The fall Gala, the highlight of the mountain community's social calendar, is the largest single fundraising event. KEEP (Keep Excellent Education Programs) is a direct donation solicitation.

GRANTS

Monies are awarded by LPEF to the District - LPJUSD,  as specific program grants and include accountability requirements and measurement criteria.
