LPS Education Foundation Planned Giving

You can create a legacy by providing a donation in your will, a bequest, giving you the opportunity to support the foundation without using current assets. It is simple to establish and allows you the ability to modify it as you see fit, at any time,

You may designate the foundation as a beneficiary of any portion of the insurance or IRA. By allocating a portion of these assets, you can provide support to the foundation as well as any others you wish to designate as beneficiaries.  Again, you have the option of modifying it at any time.

Required Minimum Distribution of your IRA
(Please consult your financial advisor for current recommendations.)
For a regular IRA, you are required to withdraw a taxable amount each year after you reach the age of 70 ½. By having your IRA broker directly donating any portion of this distribution to the Foundation, that amount  of your RMD is tax exempt, saving you taxable income. And, you can change the amount on an annual basis.

Star Awards

Are you looking for a unique way to thank a Livonia Public Schools staff member? A Star Award honors any LPS employee who has made a difference in a student’s, family’s or fellow staffer’s life. For a $25 donation to the Foundation, a personalized, color certificate will be presented to your honoree, and they will receive recognition on the Foundation’s website and social media platforms as well as the district’s social media platforms. The certificate will be personalized with your praise to show this LPS employee how much they mean to you!

Please click on the link below to send a Star Award to an awesome LPS staff member!

Donations received will be used to help fund the Foundation’s Grant Program so all funds will be going back into the schools to provide programs and supplies for our students and staff.

Thank you for your support!
