Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation (FoLF)

Founded by visionary neighbors in 1998, the Friends of Laurelhurst Foundation (FOLF), is a nonprofit, community foundation dedicated to maintaining a $1+ million endowment that enriches the educational experience of Laurelhurst Elementary students, now and into the future, by complementing our PTA’s budget. FOLF supports current needs but also looks ahead to the needs of future generations. Recent FOLF contributions to LES exceed $150,000 and include funding for a full-time teacher and part-time reading specialist; implementing Playworks and the Readers and Writers programs; and supporting reading and math materials, assessments and curriculum needs. FOLF’s Five for Five (545) Campaign asks families to contribute $500/year for 5 years. FOLF hosts a special celebration at JM Cellars in Woodinville for those who contribute. Learn more at:
