Make 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 2015 LAESF fundraising campaign was held at Los Almos National Labortory May 18–June 19, 2015. As of June 22, $348,890.72 was donated by 796 Lab employees, with an additional $250,000 matching contribution made by LANS, LLC. The final campaign total will be announced soon. General donations are accepted year-round. Click here to give.

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 last 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 2014 goal by raising $592,849.

See below for more information and to make a donation, or contact Tony Fox at (505) 753-8890 ext 116.
