Annual Fund

Through the LFSF Annual Fund, parents and friends of the school offer support with a yearly gift at a level that they are comfortable. These contributions directly support our students through tuition assistance and pedagogical projects. 

As demonstrated by the disruptive events of 2020, your Annual Fund gifts provide the needed resources to maintain a safe, supportive, and diverse learning environment.

A strong Annual Fund helps us achieve the social and economic diversity we embrace at LFSF. Everyone's participation means we're 100% committed. This commitment may help us receive potential external funding.

Those who give generously make it possible for the Lycée Français de San Francisco to offer the finest education. These gifts not only benefit the students of today, but also continually ensure LFSF can provide for generations of students to come.

Elysée Circle & Ambassadors Club

Join us as a member of the Elysée Circle and Ambassadors Club with a leadership gift of $5,000+ & $1500+ to the Annual Fund, Fund for the Future or Special Gift. Our Elysée Circle and Ambassadors Club members are very important to us and there’s a variety of ways that we show our appreciation for the special investment they make in the lives of our students.

Ambassadors Club Breakfast

Near the beginning of each fall semester we invite club members to an informal breakfast where we offer updates on upcoming campus events and news. It’s also a great time for members to meet each other and the directors of our programs and campuses in an intimate setting

Elysée Circle Dinner

During Spring, Elysée Circle members are invited to dinner hosted by Consul General of France at the Residence of France. It is a privileged moment for Lycée Français de San Francisco directors and the President of the Board of Trustees to thank our donors for their leadership and generosity.

Ambassadors Club Cocktail

Every spring, we host a reception for our Ambassadors Club members. It’s an opportunity for the Advancement Department to report to our major donors the impact their giving has had upon LFSF campus life for the academic year.

Ambassadors Club Special Access

As a perk for being in the Elysée Circle and Ambassadors Club, we occasionally offer special access to some of the notable personalities who visit our campus: philosophers, speakers, musicians, artists, actors. As permitted, we host cocktail events before or after performances, offering an opportunity to meet these special visitors. Because these are small group settings, reservations are required and granted on a first-come first-serve basis.
