how we support the schools


SchoolPower contributes to the schools through our grant program, 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.

SchoolPower Grants

SchoolPower’s goal is to encourage innovation, creativity and excellence in our schools. We know that empowering educators is key to this effort. Over the past 12 years, SchoolPower has given over $1,000,000 to fund teacher grants, in large and small amounts.


Each year attendees at SchoolPower’s Annual Gala, as well as virtual supporters, give generously to fund an initiative, determined in partnership with LBUSD. Fund-a-needs have resulted in about $2,000,000 raised in the past 15 years to support diverse needs from students’ social emotional health to reimagining classrooms on our campuses.

Donor Designations

Since 2010, SchoolPower donors have directly designated $1.5 million to teachers, grade levels, LBHS athletics and other programs through SchoolPower’s annual campaign. With your contribution of $600 or more, you can designate 20% to any school, grade level, program, booster or PTA. Give directly to something you love–from the Kindness Club to the El Morro kindergarten staff.
