Resources for LPS Families

Family Resources

At the Foundation, we work to ensure that students never have to settle because they don’t have the funds or access they need to grow. From providing emergency support to expanding your knowledge of education in Lincoln, we offer a spectrum of resources for families.
 

  • We raise funds to support strong, stable families. Families can request support by contacting the social worker at their child's school. We provide expedited, emergency support in the form of funds for rent, car repairs, medicine, eyewear, etc.

  • We believe all kids should have access to high-quality, STEAM-focused learning opportunities. Check out our affordable, engaging and fun summer learning program for kids in kindergarten to fifth grade. Scholarships are available.

  • The Foundation for LPS can cover the cost of driver’s education classes to ensure that students who want to learn how to drive can do so.

  • Each school has a Fund for Excellence that can be used at the discretion of the principal. To request funds, please contact your school.

  • The Foundations funds unique experiences that are focused on their interests to help hone students’ technical skills. These partnerships with Southeast Community College, The Bay, UNL, Bryan Health, and more give students a head start on their career through dual credit, and challenge them to think bigger.

  • The Stuart Elliot Student Assistance Fund was established in 2021 in an effort to help all students reach their full potential. Funds may cover the cost of students getting involved in enrichment activities or pursuing additional educational opportunities because the monetary cost is a barrier to their participation.

  • Being a part of the Honor Roll Society gives you exclusive access to people, events and opportunities. That means taking education beyond “reading, writing and arithmetic” and providing innovative solutions to the ever-evolving educational needs of today’s kids.

  • The fastest way to stay up-to-date on important dates, services and support. Like us on Facebook.
