Lehighton Education & Athletic Fund (LEAF)
The Lehighton Education & Athletic Fund was established to support the operations and activities of the Lehighton Education & Athletic Foundation (LEAF) as well as the education and athletic activities at Lehighton Area School District (LASD), as recommended by LEAF Board members.
The charitable goals of the Lehighton Education & Athletic Fund are to:
- Award competitive program grants to LASD teachers and administrators
- Provide financial support for promoting and maintaining enrichment and remediation
- Enrich fine arts, extra-curricular, and athletic programs
- Expand the use of technology in the classroom
The Community Foundation may accept requests of the Fund and will share them with the Advisory Committee for consideration. LEAF may also make recommendations for distributions based on requests they receive. Distributed grants should align with the goals of the Fund and benefit Lehighton Area School District.
The group has been working tirelessly with the Borough of Lansford since the pool closed, organizing fundraisers and volunteer days to get it back open for the community. In the summer of 2022, repair work began and the pool is slated to reopen in the summer of 2023.
This fund will be used to support the continued renovation, operations, and maintenance of the pool.
Stay up to date on fundraisers and events through the Friends of Lansford Pool Facebook page.
