Sponsor a Child

Make a unique difference in the life of a child by sponsoring a scholarship

Research shows that the most impactful time to invest in a child’s education is during early childhood—and yet many children from low-income families don’t have access to quality early learning programs. Our sponsors’ investment over the course of a child’s three years at LELC makes our model possible…and forever changes the lives of our students. They graduate “kindergarten-ready” and on track for success in elementary school and life.

Be a part of the child’s journey for three years

Sponsoring a scholarship is also a deeply rewarding experience for the sponsor. Over the course of the student’s three years at LELC, sponsors receive artwork, photographs, and thank you cards which highlight our little learners’ many leaps and bounds. Sponsors are invited to visit the school to meet their student and attend special events. Many sponsors enjoy the experience so much that they choose to renew their commitment to a new student after their original child graduates.

Choose a scholarship level that suits your budget

Scholarships can be funded by individuals, families, businesses, community groups, or foundations. Sponsors can fund an Academic-Year Scholarship, which covers our fall and spring semesters (September through June), or a Year-Round Scholarship, which includes both our academic year and our summer program (September through August).

General Scholarship Fund

If you aren’t ready to make a scholarship commitment today, consider making a gift to the General Scholarship Fund.

While most of our children are funded by individual donors, several depend on our General Scholarship Fund. Your gift makes an LELC education possible and accessible to even more children.

* For the shared year-round Shared Scholarship and Trinity Scholarships, you don’t need to identify the other sponsor(s) who will fund the other portion(s) of the scholarship—let us take care of that!
