LGEF raises essential funds that ensure the children of Los Gatos Union school district receive high-quality programs and resources vital to their education.
Los Gatos schools receive less per student from the state and federal government than other, similar schools. LGEF helps “fill the gap” by funding teachers and staff that help educate the whole child. Learn more about what we fund.
See the complete LGEF Vision, Mission and Values.
LGEF started collecting donations in 1983 in response to a state budget crisis which threatened sudden cuts in teaching staff. Since it's founding LGEF has contributed over $10 million to Los Gatos schools.
Today Los Gatos Education Foundation (LGEF) is a volunteer-run, 501c3 non-profit organization that raises private funds through our annual giving campaigns to support the students of Los Gatos Union School District.
