The Lakewood Rangers Education Foundation is dedicated to raising funds to support the students in the Lakewood City Schools with opportunities and enrichment above and beyond the classroom experience.
We cannot do it without the support of our alumni, parents, educators, administrators and community. We encourage you to partner with us to make a difference for each and every student with your tax deductible gift, whether you make a one-time or monthly contribution, a class gift from your reunion group, contribute to or create an endowed scholarship fund or designate a planned gift from your estate.
