Our community’s gifts – your gifts – to the Foundation enable us to support student achievement and success. We have been fortunate to work with some incredible people who found a passion for our students, our educators and our classrooms- throughout their personal experiences, and as a member of the 2018 Leadership Lawrence class. They came to us at the Foundation with a goal to help fill in the gaps and ensure every students and family has the opportunity to achieve, succeed and graduate future ready, eliminating any barrier of need. With their generosity, we established a new privately-funded program, I.C.A.N. The “CAN” in I.C.A.N. stands for Classroom Angel Network,
The goal is to provide school social workers, counselors and school psychologists within the Lawrence Public Schools funds necessary to meet the immediate and emergency needs of students. Children without running water. Children without a mattress to sleep on. Children without shoes to wear. Children who need socks, underwear, and health and hygiene products, so they can come to school clean, confident, and ready to learn.
