As an independent school, the LFSF depends on voluntary gifts to offset a portion of the operating budget and help bridge the difference between tuition and revenue and the full cost of providing the best education possible to each student in line with the LFSF vision and mission.

The two main ways to give to the LFSF are by making a gift to the Annual Fund and participating in the annual Gala. Special or restricted gifts in support of specific projects, educational programs, and the endowment are another important part of giving to the LFSF.

Thanks to the support of parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and staff, and friends our LFSF students thrive. We are grateful to all who generously contribute to the school's fundraising efforts
