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

The importance of showing your support

Why you are asked to give to LFSF

As an LFSF parent, you already are familiar with the importance of fundraising in providing the funds necessary to enhance the educational experience you've chosen for your child.

The funds raised by the school, either through the Annual Fund, the Fund for the Future, or the other giving opportunities available at LFSF, make possible the organization of educational class trips, the visits of artists in residence, the purchase of important educational tools (climbing wall, outdoor games, flexible class furniture), or the funding of educational training or actions such as some of the recent work done on DEIJ.

Reaching out to Foundations

Foundations can be a significant part of non-profit's fundraising plan as they can boost the existing individual and corporate giving programs. They are grant-making entities – i.e. organized non-profits that exists for the purpose of giving out money, in the form of grants, to other non-profits, in order to bring about positive change according to their own mandate.

LFSF reached out to Foundations with a project to organize francophone Visual Artist Residencies over several years. The LFSF would invite an artist from a francophone country from Africa, North Africa, Indian Ocean, or Pacific Island for 3 to 4 weeks, to work with students on a visual art project giving them a concrete experience in collaborating with someone from one of these cultures.

Our challenge : 100% parent participation

Foundations are closely looking at the parent participation rate to measure their engagement. Our current parent participation only reaches 55% and it is important for us to be able to increase it closer to 100%. We count on you to reach this ambitious goal.

Gifts come in all shapes and sizes, but all participations are equal: consider making a donation today! 






Thursday, Feb. 10, Friday, Feb. 11 and Monday Feb. 14th, rally parents at drop off and pick-up by handing out flyers with the QR code to donate and a piece of chocolate! 

We need to get 100% parent participation before March 14th!  

WHY? Because we are asking for a $100K grant to finance francophone Visual Artist Residencies over several years. The LFSF will invite an artist from a francophone country from Africa, North Africa, Indian Ocean, or Pacific Island for 3 to 4 weeks to work with students on a visual art project.
