The La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation, the nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money each year for La Cañada's public schools, begins its spring phone campaign next week. Volunteers will be operating in space offered by Dilbeck Real Estate.
Community members are encouraged to continue donations of $2,500 per family. Specifically, the foundation plans to earmark funds to reduce class sizes in grades 4-6; further reduce class sizes in ninth-grade English and math; revitalize La Cañada Unified School District campuses, fields and facilities; expand course offerings and complete technological upgrades.
Last year, the foundation raised $2.25 million in support of the La Cañada schools.
Donor appreciation yard signs will be distributed beginning May 18. Signs will be given to nonschool families who have given $500 and school families who have given at the $1,000 level. Special "platinum" signs will be distributed to those who give $2,500 or more. For additional details, visit www.lcfef.org.
