The LEF Golf Classic is the foundation’s primary fund-raiser. It has raised about $100,000 annually.
In 1991, four members of the Loudoun County School Board (Fred Flemming, James Callahan, William White and Barbara D’Elia) founded the LEF. The foundation was modeled after a similar organization in Fairfax County. Since its formation, the LEF has given more than $1,515,000 to Loudoun’s students.
The foundation supplies funds for teacher grants for innovative programs and Standards of Learning enhancement; assistance to families who needed help with summer school tuition; sponsors Ethics in Leadership days for several high schools; sponsors the Loudoun County Public Schools Social Studies/History Fair and Regional Science Fair; and helps to cover travel expenses for students taking part in national competitions.
The LEF awards scholarships to qualified graduating seniors of Loudoun County’s public high schools. Current Loudoun County teachers are eligible to receive scholarships for pursuing graduate degrees or advanced training. Classified employees are eligible to receive scholarships for pursuing teacher licensure.
