what we support

SchoolPower contributes to the schools through our fund-a-need and teacher grants, as well as donor-designated funds that go directly to classrooms, programs, PTAs, athletics and boosters. This allows our talented teachers and administrators to dream big and provide a world-class public education for our kids. SchoolPower’s support enables the district to accomplish ambitious goals faster and creates an environment that encourages innovation and advancement.

Distributions to LBUSD


Each year attendees at SchoolPower’s Annual Dinner Dance, as well as virtual supporters, give generously to fund a district-led initiative. One hundred percent of the money raised goes directly to LBUSD, resulting in nearly $2 million in funding in the past 15 years to support diverse needs from students’ social emotional health to reimagining classrooms on our campuses.
