LAMS Makerspace

Students at Los Alamos Middle School enjoyed working in the makerspace at the library.  Thanks to a generous grant from N3B, the Foundation provided lots of materials for students to work with this spring.  Learning looks like fun!

Help us impact every teacher this year.  We need 450 people to sign up for $5 of recurring monthly giving.
We’re making progress!

“On behalf of the Los Alamos Public Schools students and staff, THANK YOU! The Foundation is a wonderful partner in education and is helping meet essential needs in our schools.”Dr. Kurt Steinhaus, Secretary of New Mexico Public Education Department and former Los Alamos Public Schools Superintendent (2015-2021)

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.
