The LEADER Fund financially supports academic and athletic endeavors within the Lapeer Community Schools in order to assist students and faculty in their pursuit of excellence.
LEADER Fund (Lapeer Education & Athletic Development Expense Resource) was formed in May 2015 with the mission of assisting LCS in funding of updated athletic complexes, providing academic scholarships to Leaders in their senior class as well as being a funding resource for academic endeavors, athletic groups and faculty via a merit review process.
Funding for our mission comes from our Foundation’s major fundraising events. We accept all donations, large or small, to continue pursuing excellence in our school system. We are partnering with local businesses and groups eager to help enhance our community’s future by providing top level facilities, technology and curriculum for our children, teachers, coaches and administrators.
