SUPPORT LFSF

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

Charitable Giving Tax 2021 Tax Update

  • SINGLE taxpayers can claim a $300 deduction as an adjustment to income on all tax returns for cash donations to qualifying charitable organizations.
  • MARRIED Couples will be able to claim $600 for cash donations. 
  • Cash donations mean debit or credit card, check, cash, or unreimbursed out-of-pocket expenses to a qualifying charitable organization. Non-cash donations do not qualify.

  • Note cash contributions made either to supporting organizations or to establish or maintain a donor-advised fund (DAF or charitable remainder trusts for example) do not qualify.
