Mission & History

Loudoun Education Foundation Mission and History at Woodgrove Commencement

Why We Exist

It's no surprise that safe, prosperous communities tend to have quality public education systems. This is especially true in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Education is the key to unlocking human potential, and classrooms are often the incubators of innovation that changes the world.


While local tax revenue covers the operating costs of Loudoun County Public Schools, the Loudoun Education Foundation works with educators, students, parents and community partners to fill the gaps that happen at scale.


LEF is an outcome-oriented nonprofit organization, working backward from the problem to find real-world solutions.
