Investing in Brighter Futures

The Los Alamos Public Schools Foundation is an independent non-profit organization that supports, challenges, and invests in a successful future for all Los Alamos public school students. Since its inception in 2005, the LAPS Foundation has raised more than $1 million to fund opportunities and materials for students, provide professional development for district educators, defray operating expenses, and assist with capital improvements to enrich learning environments in the Los Alamos public schools. The LAPS Foundation raises money through generous contributions from individuals and organizations who share the Foundation’s core values.  Donations to LAPS Foundation are tax deductible.
