The Pathways Fund

The Pathways Fund is a vital component of our work. Annual gifts of all sizes provide the resources we need to provide services and training, and to engage in research to advance our understanding.

Giving at all levels is encouraged.

Your participation in annual giving sends a powerful message—to prospective families, to the education community, to researchers, and to potential investors—and signals your deep commitment to create a pathway to learning for everyone.

There are many ways to contribute. Your gift helps us impact the lives of so many.


A check or credit card gift is the simplest type of charitable gift. Checks can be mailed to:

Lee Pesky Learning Center:
Attn: Advancement Department
3324 Elder Street
Boise, ID 83706

Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds

Many gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds result in a charitable deduction for the full market value of the donated asset, even if you bought it for far less, and minimize capital gains taxes.

If you are interested in making a gift of this type, please use our Stock Transfer Form.

IRA Rollover

Donors 70.5 and older are required to make minimum distributions on an annual basis. These distributions are also subject to income tax. By transferring this income to LPLC, a donor is able to contribute to the financial health of LPLC and avoid income tax. The IRA donor is able to directly transfer up to $100,000 to LPLC per year.

Closely Held Stock

Donating the closely held stock of your business offers you a charitable deduction for the appraised fair market value and potential saving of capital gains tax.

Matching Gifts

You can double or even triple your gift through an employer matching gift. If you do not know if your employer offers a matching gift program, simply ask your HR department.
