About Us

The West Lafayette Schools Education Foundation is the first of its kind in the State, and the school corporation was instrumental, along with supportive state legislators, in the passage of the law that allows for this kind of foundation, one tied directly to the individual school corporation. Our school corporation can be proud of the essential role that we played in this important legislation.

Mission Statement

The mission of the West Lafayette Schools Education Foundation is to support the West Lafayette Community School Corporation in improving the schools’ educational programs and operation by obtaining funding to support the mission of the West Lafayette Community School Corporation and strengthening alumni ties to the schools.

The goals of the West Lafayette Schools Education Foundation are

  • to enhance the quality of public education,
  • to recognize and reward excellence in education,
  • to foster community support for public school education, and
  • to encourage and support innovative projects designed to improve the quality of learning.
