About Us

The Los Angeles County Education Foundation (LACEF) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1996 whose mission is to remove barriers that limit children’s futures. LACEF believes that all children, particularly those most affected by financial and social hardships, can thrive in environments that promote a curiosity for learning and promote self-sufficiency. LACEF organizes its work around three critical strategies to attain the necessary changes in systems to optimize the education and self-sufficiency skills of children and youth:

  • Influence the allocation of resources
  • Partner with others to develop new educational models
  • Provide hands-on learning opportunities in science and environmental education

LACEF’s comprehensive agenda ensures that public and private investments are made that will have long-term impact on educational outcomes and change the life-trajectories of children and youth.
