Giving back to the agricultural communities who have given us so much
Raising the Bar for our Youth
The REAP Foundation was formed in 2009 by a collective of local farming families. The intention was to help the rural immigrant community access the pathway to success through achievement in education. REAP is proud to partner with Lindsay Unified School District and Cutler Orosi Joint Unified School District. When REAP was first being conceived, it was determined that the program would best work in a district where REAP could support and build upon what had already been established. Both Lindsay and Cutler Orosi are districts in rural farming communities that strive to give their students a great education and promote a college going culture. The REAP program has been going strong in Lindsay since 2009 and in Cutler Orosi since 2016.
REAP began in 2009 at the Lindsay Unified School District and expanded to Cutler-Orosi Joint Unified School District in 2016. Lindsay High School celebrated it’s first REAP graduating class in 2013 and Cutler-Orosi celebrated theirs in 2020.
Over the years, REAP has been a successful program implemented in the community of Lindsay. Our commitment to our students manifests itself in different ways, but below are just a few ways to calculate their success.

“REAP has helped me strive for higher grades that I probably wouldn’t have tried for before.”
