Giving Tuesday

DEC 03 | GIVING TUESDAY , There's no better day to give

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world on DEC 03, 2019 and every day.

It was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.

This year, in the spirit of Giving Tuesday, the Board of Trustees will be matching every donation made, up to $20,000.

If you have not yet given, please consider giving on DEC 03, as there is no better day to give!

If you've already given, please check if your employer will match your gift. 

Help out in the joint effort to reach our Annual Fund goal.


Our goals are $350K and 100% participation. 

As of 11/15/2019, we have raised $150K. 

Parent participation rate is at 24% and Faculty & Staff is at 56%. 

Key Dates: The campaign ends 12/21/2019 but pledges and contribution can be made until June 1, 2020.


Annual Fund fact #1: Supporting Education

60% goes to Financial aid:  this year 121 students are able to continue their education at the LFSF.  With your contribution, we can keep this up and even improve it.

Annual Fund Fact #2: learning experiences outside the classroom

30% of the funds collected via the Annual Fund powers school field trips.  

Last year 110 field trips were organized over the 3 campuses

  • 60 Ashbury,
  • 27 Sausalito, and
  • 23 for Ortega Students. 

Your contribution ensures that our teachers and staff have the means to continue creating learning experiences outside the classroom.


10% of the Annual Fund envelop allows LFSF to invite Authors & Artists in Residence and Conference Speakers.  

Our Ashbury and Sausalito librarians are in the process of selecting 2 new authors and illustrators to visit the students in May 2020.  Last year the children worked with Edouard Manceau and Veronique Deiss both of whom were a huge hit with the children. 

Giving to the Annual Fund will help us organize more memorable conferences on the Ortega campus. Do you remember the visit from Astronaut Steve Smith? Our students do! Thank you!
