The Lee’s Summit Educational Foundation’s 2014 Major Saver campaign raised $102,885 for the Educational Foundation and Lee’s Summit R-7 schools.

Through the fundraising campaign, students at R-7 schools sell the dining/event discount cards with money raised going to the Foundation and to the students’ schools.

Money raised for the Foundation will help further student success by providing classroom PEAK (Promoting Excellence and Knowledge) Grants and Google Chromebooks across the school district.

This is the 18th year that the Educational Foundation has partnered with Major Saver to raise money for Lee’s Summit R-7 students and schools.
