Building Brighter Futures: Parkland School District Education Foundation Partners with United Way

Our nonprofit partner agencies are UNITED in creating lasting solutions to our community’s greatest challenges.

The Parkland School District Education Foundation, a new United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley qualified partner, is dedicated to enhancing educational opportunities for students within the Parkland School District community. Through strategic partnerships and fundraising initiatives, the foundation works to provide resources and support that enrich the academic experience, promote innovation and foster student success. By investing in programs and initiatives that support the arts, athletics and academics, the foundation aims to empower students to reach their full potential and excel in their educational journey.

“Every year, the staff at Parkland write grants, and the Foundation works to fund as many as we can. This past year we funded $207,000 worth of grants back to our schools. To date we have been able to fund over $1.7 million dollars’ worth of grants since our inception in 2011,” shared Lisa Ervin, Executive Director of the Parkland Education Foundation.

With a commitment to collaboration and community engagement, the Parkland School District Education Foundation plays a vital role in shaping the future of education for generations to come. We believe that everyone in the community wins when the local public schools are thriving.
