The Lafayette Endowment Fund for Education, Inc. (LEFE) is a nonprofit organization of individuals dedicated to better meeting the educational needs of the children in the Lafayette County School District. As a nonprofit organization, LEFE accepts tax-deductible contributions. Through its board of directors, LEFE seeks input from parents, teachers, and school administrators in determining the most effective application of funds raised.

Endowment Goals

The goal of the Lafayette Endowment Fund for Education is to nurture a better education for all children. LEFE makes an ongoing commitment to enhance educational resources both today and tomorrow. LEFE uses ten percent of all donations received each year to fund the permanent endowment, thereby providing financial support for future needs.


The Lafayette Endowment Fund for Education solicits grant applications annually from the faculty of Lafayette County schools. In conjunction with school administrators, LEFE reviews grant applications to determine the projects that best enhance the educational process. The LEFE Board of Directors awards final grant approvals.
