Supporting Our Students and Staff: The LCPS Foundation works diligently to raise funds to support the schools’ educational goals. Each year, the Foundation provides financial support to a number of LCPS programs and to local educators. Monies that are raised by the Board of Directors’ projects are distributed to the classrooms, schools and to professional educators in a timely fashion. Private, corporate and educational donations have made dreams come true. This is only the beginning! We hope you will support our efforts and we value your involvement and input.

Who We Are

The Las Cruces Public Schools Foundation, Inc., was conceived in 1999 and quickly developed in gaining support and in attracting contributions. The Foundation is a separate entity from the school district operating and managing its gifts separately from the school system. With its nonprofit status and mission to support the schools, the Foundation is able to give more financial help to our students, educators and district programs each year.

We welcome feedback from the community, especially LCPS staff. Contact Nyeta Haines, LCPS Foundation Executive Director, 505 S. Main St., Ste 249, Las Cruces, NM 88001. 527-5807, or nhaines@lcps.k12.nm.us
