About LTSF

Mission & History

The Power of LTSF and YOU!

The Lawrence Township School Foundation was established in 1983 to provide MSD of Lawrence Township teachers and students with funding for programs that weren’t supported by tax dollars. Since then, LTSF has contributed more than $7.6 million to support the education of our children. Today, the Foundation partners with the school district, connecting community and classrooms to provide resources that empower young people to reach their full potential.

Lawrence Township Schools have a long history of successfully challenging students to learn and grow. Yet, cuts in public education funding and the local property tax cap create challenges that cannot be resolved without YOUR help. 

The Lawrence Township School Foundation actively reaches out to YOU and the entire community to gain the financial support needed to fund critical programs now and for the future.  By bringing resources into the district, ALL Lawrence Township children have the tools they need to succeed.

Our Mission:

The Lawrence Township School Foundation connects community and classrooms to provide the resources needed for all children to excel.

Core Values

  • People Matter

    A person's a person, no matter how small. We keep our focus on those who give us energy to succeed. Whether it’s the students and staff we serve, the donors who help us achieve our mission, or our family who cares for us outside of work, people are the core of who we are.

  • We Care

    Why so we care so much? Well that is easy...Unless you care a whole awful lot nothing is going to get better it's not. No matter what we do, we care. We care to be kind, to help others, and do our very best. In fact, we believe that when there is care and compassion in all we do, others can succeed.

  • We Go the Extra Mile

    You'll never be bored when you try something new. There's really no limit to what we can do. Whether it is answering a simple question or doing a key task, going above and beyond is not an option, it is an expectation. Being responsive and innovative to meet student needs is important to us, and we'll always choose to put in extra effort in everything we do.

  • BFF is our BFF

    So be sure when you step, step with care and great tact. And remember that life's a great balance act. Balance, Flexibility, and Fun are important in all that we do. Keeping balance to avoid burnout, being willing to do what it takes to get the job done and having fun can sometimes conflict, but when we keep BFF in our lives, everyone wins!

Our Vision:

We are a strong and vibrant community where all children are supported and empowered to shine.
