Dear La Cañada Families and Community,


It’s hard to believe that the 2022-2023 school year is quickly coming to an end! With spring and its abundance of new beginnings upon us, we can’t help but reflect on the incredible generosity of our community and school families over this current academic year. The way that our parents, businesses and neighbors continually show up to support our children is so inspiring – and it is big part of why our District stands apart from others.


While we are close to meeting our fundraising goals for the year, we still have some work to do to accomplish our overall objective of raising $2.5 million dollars for our District. As a reminder, the money raised by the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation goes toward keeping our classroom sizes small, providing funding for programs such as art, theater, music, and Spanish at the elementary schools, providing technology needs for our classrooms and teachers, retaining high school counselors as well as providing wellness opportunities for students on all of our campuses. Please support your child by donating today. Our goal is 100% participation, so please give what you can based on your own comfort level. Families who donate during the 2022-23 Fiscal Year will receive yard signs at these levels:


Platinum Partner sign – $3,000

Gold Partner sign – $1,200

School Family sign – $600


To give, please pay with the remittance below and mail it to our office at 4490 Cornishon Ave, Room 211, La Cañada, or visit us at or call (818) 952-4268. Thank you in advance for your support.


Warm regards,


Yvonne Lutz and Tracey Nelson

LCFEF Co-Presidents 2022-2023


In addition to its Annual Fund, the LCFEF also runs an Endowment Fund, which invests Endowment-directed donations for the long-term success and security of our schools.
