Lapeer County Educational Attainment Fund ("LEAF")

LEAF is a program brought to our students by
the Lapeer County Community Foundation and ELGA Credit Union

What:  Education savings account used after high school graduation.  Used for career training costs, trade school, certification, traditional 2/4 year college tuition, fees, books.

Who:  Every Kindergartener, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grader attending Lapeer County public schools.

When:  Beginning in 2019, in the fall, all kindergarteners in these districts will have a deposit-only savings account opened in their name and the program will continue for these students throughout their K-12 years.  Each year thereafter, the program will continue for those who are enrolled in Kindergarten.  The initial $25 seed money will be provided by the Lapeer County Community Foundation.  

Why:  Children with savings accounts from $1 - $499 are 3 times more likely to attend college and 4 times more likely to graduate.  We believe in the future of every child in Lapeer County and this program demonstrates that commitment.
