In the fall of 2006, a small group of committed parents, educators, and community leaders formed an exploratory committee to officially start an education foundation for the Loomis basin area.  After months of work, the Loomis Basin Education Foundation was officially incorporated on December 21, 2006.

The Loomis Basin Education Foundation, (L.B.E.F.) exists to improve the overall educational experience of students in the Loomis Union School District, (LUSD) by supplementing academic and enrichment programs while supporting the district’s strategic plan.  We are able to extend grants to the LUSD by hosting community events and receiving donations from LUSD families and community businesses. We began in December of 2006 and hosted our first annual community event; the MandaRUN in October of 2007. It continues to be a mainstay for the community.  Since then we have added a not-to-be-missed annual Loomis Basin Holiday Home Tour with beautiful homes all decked out for the holidays, an annual e-waste drive in April and an annual giving campaign in the fall. We have included a district calendar which high-lights our L.B.E.F. community events as well. We hope you will be able to attend; the events are a lot of fun and a great way to get involved with the community. 

The first MandaRUN was held in October of 2007. It brought the community together with a 10K, 5K and fun run in downtown Loomis and raised over $17,000.  Since then fundraising efforts have expanded. There is an annual MandaRUN which includes a beautiful half-marathon course from Auburn to Loomis and a 5K run, an annual not-to-be-missed Loomis Basin Holiday Home Tour in December of each year.

In 2015 the Loomis Basin Education Foundation brought Go the Distance under their umbrella.  This event brings all of the schools in the LUSD, in conjunction with Del Oro High School, together to make a true community-wide event.  L.B.E.F. is proud to add Go the Distance to our list of worthwhile and exciting events.
