LFDCS Scholarship Funds & PFK Endowment Fund


LFDCS Scholarship Fund
opening doors for our current students

Donate to this fund

In June of each year approximately 75-80 students will graduate from LFDCS, and at least 40 of these students will have earned admission to selective secondary schools. Twenty-five or more graduates need $2,000-$4,000 for each year of high school or $8,000-$16,000 set aside in scholarships to ensure not only that they can enroll but also remain at their chosen high school until they graduate. An average of $10,000 for students or $250,000 is the real need of annual scholarships at Lawrence Family Development Charter School.
