Learn More About Our Foundation

Littleton Education Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c) organization that exists to serve as a conduit for donations of time, resources, and funding for the Littleton Elementary School District (LESD). Littleton ESD is an elementary/middle school district established in 1912 that since that time has been the cornerstone for community development. The district, whose motto is “Leaders in Learning, Caring, and Growing,” serves almost 6,000 students in southern Avondale, west of Phoenix, at the base of the Estrella Mountains and the confluence of the Agua Fria and Gila Rivers. Littleton ESD is a “Kids At Hope” district, embracing the philosophy that “All kids are capable of success—no exceptions.”

We Support Our Children

We support all Littleton ESD children by funding teacher grants, enrichment programs, and signature projects that provide multiple pathways to student success. We act as a conduit for the greater community to be able to support all children in Littleton Elementary School District so that they have the resources and opportunities they need to be successful in school and in their lives. Please feel free to contact us via email at any time.


We are always looking for volunteers. If you would like to volunteer, please email
