LGEF is partnering with the Rotary Club of Los Gatos to bring dollars back to our schools. Each year, the Rotary Club sponsors the Great Race, a 4 mile footrace from Saratoga to Los Gatos along Highway 9. The race is now in it's 40th year.
This year's event is on Sunday, April 30.
When enrolling for the race at www.lggreatrace.com, use the promo code LGEF and 20% of your registration fee will be returned to us. And, if LGEF ends up with the most entrants, we will receive an extra $200 from the Rotary Club!

The LGEF Business Partner program is pleased to announce that respected local business Hall & Burnett Orthodontics has made a generous $12,000 donation to the Los Gatos Education Foundation.
Long time donors, Hall & Burnett have been supporting Los Gatos community organizations for many years. Dr. Burnett commented, “At Hall & Burnett Orthodontics, our focus has always been on how we give back to this wonderful place in which we live, go to school and raise our families!”
Huge thanks to Hall & Burnett for their support!
After the shopping binge of "Black Friday" and "Cyber Monday" it's nice to see a new type of "day" in our calendar: Giving Tuesday.
Over 1,000 U.S. charities, community organizations, and businesses have banded together to promote this Tuesday as a day to give back, give more, and assist others.
This year I suggest you give to our children by supporting the Los Gatos Education Foundation. You'll help Los Gatos school funding catch up with other Bay Area districts, and you'll ensure a high quality education for our students.
Remember -- your contribution is tax-deductible and funds great programs that benefit the children of Los Gatos.
Please donate today!

If you see a volunteer please say hi. And please support LGEF!
