Ladera Ranch Education Foundation
We are proud to partner with Ladera Performing Arts. The Ladera Ranch Education Foundation (LREF) was created to raise funds to enrich and improve the quality of the educational environment for the public school children of Ladera Ranch. It is designed to strengthen the relationship between the public schools and the community, and to support a level of excellence and innovation in our children’s’ educational experience.
Beauty and the Beast will be the tenth children’s musical co-sponsored by LREF. These musicals help LREF fulfill our mission to our school children by bringing a creative avenue for arts education and the program helps LREF raise funds for its annual grant programs through a reduced fee facilities agreement with CUSD.
During the last school year, we were able ato distribute more thatn $50,000 to support our schools: Chaparral, Ladera Ranch, and Oso Grande Elementary Schools; Ladera Ranch Middle School; and Tesoro and San Juan Hills High Schools. These funds support special education, books, educational materials, physical education, and technology enhancement. To date, LREF has funded over $250,000 in grants and processes several hundred thousand more dollars annually for program specific funding.
Our all-volunteer staff of dedicated parents and community members has worked tirelessly to bring several events and programs to the community. The coming year is no exception. We hope you will join us in supporting our community by volunteering and through your attendance, contributions, participation, and enjoyment of these events and programs.
