WELCOME TO THE
LESTER PRAIRIE FOUNDATION FOR EDUCATION &
LESTER PRAIRIE SCHOLARSHIP GROUP
The Lester Prairie Foundation for Education was organized to provide a vehicle for members of the community and alumni to donate financial resouces to continue the great job Lester Prairie Schools do in educating our youth.
The Foundation has implemented a mission to gather enough financial reserve to use the interest to provide financial assistance to the school system. The Foundation currently has over $140,000 in reserves.
The primary source of income for the Foundation is the Bulldog Bash. The success of the Bash has been a real highlight for the Foundation. The 2018 Bulldog Bash will again take place at the Glencoe Event Center - April 7th.
If you have any items to donate to the Silent/Live Auction contact Kelli Machemehl, Mary Otto or Sheila Jilek.
Some of the proceeds from the Bulldog Bash support the awarding of (15)- $500
grants to teachers for classroom use. The Foundation has also donated SmartBoards to classrooms, money for Chromebooks, new sound system in the gym, painted school doors.... as well as many other items for the schools use!
Lester Prairie Scholarship Group
Lester Prairie Scholarship Group (Formerly known as Dollars for Scholars Chapter) has donated over $350,000 in scholarships since 1984.
