Welcome to the Lake Stevens Education Foundation

The Lake Stevens Education Foundation (LSEF) is a non-profit charitable organization managed by the volunteer efforts of the Foundation's Board of Directors. The Foundation was organized in 1993 by parents, community members and school district administrators for the purpose of providing an alternative source of support for district programs and scholarships. LSEF is a separate entity from the school district.

The Foundation's endowment for the support of education in Lake Stevens has grown through the generous contributions of community members, families and businesses. The Foundation receives United Way donations, business match funds and general donations. The types of programs supported by these donations range from classroom grants, individual scholarships, broad scope tutorial programs and school wide activities. To date, the Foundation has awarded over $80,000 in grants to teachers, awarded thousands of dollars in individual scholarships, established Academic Beginnings for Children (ABC) and allocated thousands of dollars in support funding for use by every school in the district.

Monthly Board Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Educational Service Center (ESC) at 12309 22nd Street NE., (Downtown Lake Stevens).


"To inspire the love of learning for all students, families, and educators in the Lake Stevens School District by providing programs, classroom grants, and scholarships to enrich the public education experience in our community."

We Will Miss Her 

Terri Spencer, one of the original Founders of the Lake Stevens Education Foundation, passed away November 25, 2019. Among Terri’s numerous contributions to the Lake Stevens community, she cared deeply about education; pouring her heart, soul, and expertise into leading LSEF from the 1990s - 2015 as our President. If you were to put a face to the definition of selflessness, it would be that of Terri Spencer.

Terri is unforgettable, but her legacy is not. The Lake Stevens Education Foundation will continue the important work that she began as we grow our impact in the educational community of Lake Stevens. While we will miss her dearly, her legacy will continue through our work.
