Resources for LACOE Employees

 

 

The Greater LA Education Foundation develops strategic initiatives, identifying public/private partnerships and creating greater connections with community stakeholders to support innovation at LACOE, share knowledge, and advocate for impact.​ We are committed to working with LACOE staff to identify and leverage resources for programs to improve outcomes for youth across the county.

LACOE employees may choose to expand the reach of LACOE and Greater LA by contributing to funds for scholarships, legacy programs, and initiatives that complement core LACOE services and priorities. We’d like to invite you to become a contributing member and make a one-time donation here.

Employees of LACOE who wish to contribute through voluntary payroll contributions should contact LACOE’s Grants Development Office at (562) 922-6112.

When did the foundation start?

Originally created as the Friends of LACOE in 2015, the board of directors along with several philanthropic partners made a decision to restructure the organization in 2019 and form the Greater LA Education Foundation.

How is Greater LA different from Friends of LACOE?

Greater LA will expand on the work of FOL by developing strategic initiatives, identifying public/private partnerships and creating greater connections with community stakeholders to support innovation at LACOE, share knowledge, and advocate for impact.

Being the philanthropic arm of LACOE - does that mean you just support LACOE projects?
