The Lowell Joint Education Foundation was established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 2005 in response to the lack of state funding for academic enrichment and innovative programs in the Lowell Joint School District. The Foundation provides financial support to special programs such as Academic Excellence Day, technology grants for the schools, and the after-school sports program at Rancho-Starbuck Intermediate School. The Lowell Joint School District serves families in the communities of La Habra, La Habra Heights, and Whittier, California.
Donors may contribute funds or products/services to help support the activities of the Lowell Joint Education Foundation. Donations are welcomed and may be submitted online via the Foundation's web site at www.ljefonline.org.
