Welcome to the home of the Jeannie Lane Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting public school teachers and classrooms. The Jeannie Lane Foundation is 501 (c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to funding scholarships, helping new teachers and needy schools build classroom libraries, awarding grants to teachers for creative and innovative projects and ideas, and promoting educational enrichment activities. Our organization currently focuses on Central Kentucky, with hopes to someday expand. We also hope in the future to continue the annual blood drive that Jeannie Lane started and provide resources and support for teachers living with cancer.

A little about Jeannie Lane
Jeannie Lane lived and breathed teaching and was always thinking of creative, effective, hands on, and fun ways of reaching her kindergarten students. A recipient of many teaching honors and awards, she inspired countless students, parents, and educators with her spirit and gifts.
Jeannie passed away in November 2004 from bladder cancer. She continued to teach throughout her illness, propelled by her strong will and courage. She was active in cancer awareness, support, and organizing an annual blood drive.
