The Power of Community

The Lawrence Township School Foundation was established in 1983 to provide teachers with funding for programs that weren’t supported by tax dollars. Since then, we’ve contributed more than $5 million to support the education of our children. Today, the Foundation partners with the school district, connecting philanthropy and education 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 with traditional funding.

The Lawrence Township School Foundation is actively reaching out to the community to gain the financial support needed to fund critical programs now and for the future.  We intend to bring resources into the district so that ALL Lawrence Township children have the tools they need to succeed.

Our Vision:

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

Our Mission:

The Lawrence Township School Foundation ignites the power of community, connecting philanthropy and education to provide the resources needed for all children to excel.

Success Stories

EdEx supports Lawrence Township Teachers

Art Educator, Sabrina Roll, stocked her classroom with free binders for students to use as art sketchbooks. Roll has up to 210 students each semester and binders are an expense not every student can afford. She said if there was any way to get 220 binders per semester, “that would be a miracle in the making.” The Lawrence Township School Foundation happily provided Roll with the binders her new students will need. “I am blown away by the support and generosity of the township and staff,” said Roll. “Thank you again!”
