Since it’s inception, the goal of the “Make a Difference” grant program has been to honor and support our children’s varied learning differences. Just as needs differ according to age, strengths, challenges and interest of students, so do the tools needed for academic and social progress.

Proceeds from our Spring Marche as well as the generosity of our Underwriters, funds our “Make a Difference” Grant Program. Collectively, LF-LB LDA has funded close to $80,000 in grants to Elementary, Middle, Junior High and High Schools in Lake Forest and Lake Bluff. Most recently in 2014, we contributed to a Spirit of 67 Foundation grant for an indoor climbing wall at Deer Path Middle School. We are thrilled that this equipment will benefit the entire DPM student population.

The LDA Grant Program involves hours of review, research, analysis and collaboration in order to guarantee that this program will have the greatest impact on our children who learn differently!
