The Littleton Public Schools Foundation is located at 5776 S. Crocker Street, Littleton, CO, 80120. In existence since 1991, the Littleton Public Schools Foundation is a standalone 501©3 organization with its sole purpose to raise funds in support of programs for all schools within Littleton Public Schools.
Governed by its own Board of Directors, which is comprised of 22 members from the community, the Littleton Public Schools Foundation does not provide any programs or services, but rather provides funding to programs and or initiatives identified by the Superintendent and district leadership. There are three major areas of focus for which the board of directors centers fundraising efforts: Health & Wellness by promoting and supporting well-being for all students and staff, Grants to Teachers by supporting classroom efforts to enhance student learning, and Technology goals of the school district to benefit all students in all curricular areas.
The board of directors for the Littleton Public Schools Foundation takes an active role in fundraising and 100% of its membership personally gives as well as seeks other funding sources. The Board of Directors meets on a monthly basis to oversee and implement the organization's already established policies, procedures, and strategic plans in addition to managing the fiduciary responsibility of the organization. Currently the Executive Director is the only full time employee of the Littleton Public Schools Foundation and that position reports directly to the Board of Directors. A part-time Administrative Assistant helps with day to day operations.
Since its inception, the Littleton Public Schools Foundation has gifted more than $5.5 million in support to Littleton Public Schools.
