HOW WE SUPPORT LCPS
The Las Cruces Public Schools Foundation began in 1998 as a 501(c)(3) organization for the purpose of soliciting contributions and grants to support the Las Cruces Public Schools (LCPS). The Foundation manages funds from individuals, business, trusts and other Foundations and organizations and helps donors identify areas of need and interest within our public schools. The managing Board of Directors is a group of local leaders that ensures the funds are invested and managed wisely.
