Littleton Public Schools Foundation (LPS Foundation) is the fundraising partner for Littleton Public Schools (LPS). Providing a quality education for every student is at the forefront of our purpose and we are committed to generating financial resources and building community partnerships that enhance student and staff success in all of our neighborhood schools.
The LPS Foundation has been in existence since 1991, is a registered standalone 501©3 organization, and is in sound financial condition with its sole purpose to raise funds in support of programs for all schools impacting all students within Littleton Public Schools. In the 27 years of our existence, we have provided over $6 million to LPS schools and have impacted close to 365,000 students.
Governed by our own Board of Directors, which is comprised of 22 members from the community, the LPS Foundation does not provide any programs or services, but rather provides funding for programs and or initiatives identified by the Superintendent and district leadership that are not paid for with tax dollars, are not included in the district’s already stretched budget, or covered by individual school’s Parent/Teacher Organizations.

1. Mental Health supports and interventions so staff and students have the resources necessary to work through adversity and build resiliency
2. STEM project-based learning experiences for all grade levels preschool – 12th
