A strong school district is the backbone of a strong community. The Ladue Education Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 2006 that enables individuals and organizations to support student achievement and enrichment at all levels in Ladue Schools through tax-deductible donations.

Donate to our general fund, to our endowment, or to help support major projects currently sponsored by the LEF. Your support will help keep our schools strong! 

In addition to simple one-time donations, there are a variety of ways to support us:

monthly giving

Your gift to the Ladue Education Foundation provides teachers, and the district as a whole, an opportunity to implement creative ideas and expand students’ learning without the use of tax dollars.

You can choose to make your donation recur monthly or annually to ensure that students achievement is supported on an on-going basis.

planned giving

Planned gifts, through a will, life income plan or charitable trust, can be an advantageous way to provide for a future gift to the Ladue Education Foundation and make a difference to the next generation of Ladue students.

stock transfer

A charitable contribution of long-term appreciated securities, i.e. stocks, bonds or mutual funds that have appreciated over time, is one of the most tax-efficient ways to give. 

For more information and the necessary forms, please contact lef@laduefoundation.org.

company matching

The LEF has a Corporate Matching Gift Program available to enable your employer to get involved in supporting the Ladue Education Foundation. It can be included as part of your donation and may help you achieve a higher donation level. A partial list of companies that match is available here. For more information please contact lef@laduefoundation.org.
