The mission of the Lake Elsinore Valley Education Foundation, a not-for-profit organization, is to provide scholarships to college bound LEUSD students. Providing books to elementary age students is a new program started this year. The Foundation was created in honor of former LEUSD Superintendent Dr. Sharron Lindsay, who envisioned it as a lasting way for the community to help support students of all abilities to pursue a college education. Fundraising activities for scholarships include an annual golf tournament in April and partnerships with local businesses.

Welcome to our new Director

We are so excited to announce our newest Director; Chris Killiany and he is shaking things up.  Chris is a proud parent of a LEUSD student and with his expertise in management and marketing, he is really working hard to get committed sponsors like MONSTER on board for our 2018 Golf Tournament. His great new ideas challenge us all as we move forward in 2018 in meeting our goals and helping us stay focused on our primary mission statement of enhancing the educational opportunities for students. Welcome aboard Chris!

Christmas Comes Early to William Collier and Wildomar Elementary Schools

Recently the LEVEF visited two local elementary schools to distribute over 500 books to first and second graders. In keeping with our mission to enhance education in the LEUSD, Directors visited over 20 classrooms with book titles ranging from Thomas the Train, Disney's Mother Goose, Color Kittens, The Seven Postmen and more. With a generous gift from the Elks Lodge in Wildomar, this year end book giveaway was made possible. Many thanks again to our wonderful Elks Lodge and Merry Christmas to all! 

distributed new books to WILDOMAR Elementary School 1st Grade students to keep as their own for the holidays. A total of 20 classrooms, grades first and second, were visited in December at two LEUSD schools. Thatís over 500 brand new books provided to students to encourage early childhood fun with reading!

2017 Trunk or Treat

We recently gave out over 600 books to the children in the Wildomar community through the Trunk Or Treat event  held at Marna O'Brien Park. Kudos to Janet Morales and the City of Wildomar for putting on such a great family event. This was our second year to participate and we had another great giveaway!  Wowza SIX HUNDRED!

Books Coming Soon To A Kid Near You!

This past summer, the LEVEF gave away nearly 500 books to the kids in the Summer Literacy Camps held at schools throughout the LEUSD. Before the end of 2017, we are planning to give out another 700 books to Kindergarten through 2nd grades by visiting local schools, gifting the Cops 4 Kids Holiday Program and dropping off books to the Sparks of Love Toy Drive sponsored through our local Cal Fire Stations serving the Lake Elsinore Community.


The Elks Lodge in Wildomar has sponsored our First Book Program allowing us to purchase over 2,700 books in 2016 & 17 and more than 2,000 for 2018. Through their Grant Program  they received $4,500 over a two year period and joined forces with us to get books into the hands of kids throughout our valley! We thank them for their generosity. Hip Hip Hooray ELKS! Special Kudos to Helene and her ladies for all their hard work!

Partnership With Edison and Schools First Credit Union

In 2017  the LEVEF partnered with SCEdison to provide $5,000 in scholarships to students in the LEUSD. Incorporating S.T.E.M. into the scholarship application process we can assist SCEdison in providing monies to seniors who plan to pursue education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. It was Thomas Edison who stated " There's a way to do it better - find it ". SC Edison has found a perfect way to get scholarship monies into the hands of seniors by their collaboration with the LEVEF! Our resources and their monies a perfect combination. The Schools First Credit Union supported the annual Golf Tournament as a sponsor allowing us to provide a scholarship to a worthy senior. Way to go Schools First!
