Lindbergh Schools Foundation
The Lindbergh Schools Foundation is an independent, 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Lindbergh Schools’ commitment to excellence in all facets of education.
- Endow and administer funds that award scholarships to Lindbergh High School students.
- Support programs and projects in Lindbergh Schools that enhance the educational experience for students.
- Strengthen the bond between Lindbergh Schools, its alumni and the Lindbergh community.
The first efforts of the foundation were directed toward funding college scholarships for Lindbergh High School seniors. Over the years, the Foundation Scholarship program has expanded to include the financial management and administration of 16 scholarships established in the name of Lindbergh administrators, teachers, coaches or alumni, in addition to the original Foundation General Scholarship.
Funding for the Foundation General Scholarship is provided through the purchase of Spirit Bricks in the LHS Spirit Garden, through payroll deductions from district employees, and through direct donations from supporters.
The Spirit of Lindbergh Fund and the Spirit of Lindbergh Teacher Grants program were established to encourage and support the efforts of district teachers who propose innovative projects to engage their students in more creative and exciting ways.
Since January 1, 2008, the Spirit of Lindbergh Teacher Grant Fund has grown to more than $130,000 and 121 Lindbergh teachers have received grants of up to $500. In addition, the prestigious Spirit of Lindbergh Society boasts 24 members, each of whom has donated a cumulative total of at least $2,000.
