The Lyme-Old Lyme Education Foundation in an independent, 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that raises and distributes funds to enhance or expand enrichment programs, support innovative teaching and learning, and build educational partnerships between students and community members. The Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. LOLEF works closely with, but is independent of, the school district.
Our goal is to create, continue or enhance valuable educational programs above and beyond those traditionally provided by the Region 18 school district. Our grants are aligned with goals identified through the District’s strategic planning process. We seek to encourage innovative and effective learning opportunities for students of all ages.
Since its inception in 2006, LOLEF has awarded more than $135,000 in grants. Please visit our Grants page to see what has been awarded!
