a Pledge and Join Us in Supporting Excellence in Education |
Many students in Northern New Mexico do not have the money to fund their college education. We ask for your support in
providing financial assistance to these deserving high school and college students. Whether you choose to make a one-time donation or commit
to a longer-term pledge, your generosity will help a student from your community build a fulfilling career and a bright future.
The LANL Foundation celebrated the 2014 annual fundraising drive with a record number of donors and dollars contributed! We’d like to thank each of the 620 LANL employees who contributed over $313,000 to LAESF this year. We’d especially like to thank Los Alamos National Security, LLC (LANS) which once again matched $250,000 in employee contributions. With the LANS match, and contributions from a non-LANL employees, LAESF successfully exceeded its goal by raising a whopping $592,849. Way to go everyone!
The next LAESF fundraising campaign will begin in May, 2015. General donations are accepted year round. Click here to give to scholarships. See below for more information and to make a donation, or contact Tony Fox at (505) 753-8890 ext 116.
