Every school year many high school students ask what will they do after their high school education is over. How do I plan for my future. We at LFW Foundation have the experience and information to help students and their families understand and plan for the future with confidence and vision. Your future is waiting for you! The world is yours to embrace!

Our Vision is to assist students to achieve and complete high school with the public and private education sector.

Closing the Achievement Gaps

The LFW Foundation, established as a public charitable foundation in 2011, offers support, unity and insight whose change not only impacts students and schools beginning with the lake Elsinore area and surrounding area communities, producing high school graduates well prepared for college, careers, and beyond. It is our mission to ensure high academic achievement for every student we encounter by attracting and preparing outstanding individuals.

The Foundation was created to enhance and impart knowledge to under privileged youth (14-18 years of age) about the importance of a high school education and the varied options available after successfully completing high school, thereby assisting the school system in reducing high school dropout rate.
