Advancement News

Dear LFSF Families and Friends,

Here at the Advancement Department we are eager, as surely you are, to find the rhythm that comes with back to school season after summer. Each school year our mission is to find the ways and means to make each school year a bit better for each and every student.  

This year will be a great challenge to take on.  Many of our fundraising and social programs will look and feel very different this year but you will recognize them as familiar moments of the LFSF school year: welcoming events for new parents, Annual Fund Campaign, Grandparents & Friends Day, Auction Gala, Athlthon, and special events for Ambassador Club and Elysee Circle members.  All dates are already set in our calendar!

We invite you to share our enthusiasm, sincerity, and aspirations for the enhancement of the children’s learning experience.


Gala 2021: Desert Lights "May Every Child Shine Bright"

As we start the new year, we are ready to move forward and are creating a wonderful Gala experience for you both in person and virtually. This year's gala, "Desert Lights, May Every Child Shine Bright", is a fitting theme as it is about hope for the future. Our gala website is now live if you are interested in being a part of this shining experience by donating, sponsoring, advertising, or attending. 

Annual Fund Update

This year the Annual Fund is especially vital to keeping the LFSF safely functioning. Donations to the Annual Fund help cover the extraordinary expenses of about $1.4M incurred to open in-person classes and virtual alternatives. We need $100K to reach the budgeted Annual Fund $350K. Check out our Annual Fund graphs to see participation rates for each class. Can we count you in?

Giving Tuesday Results

Thanks to the joint efforts of the community, together you raised $112,727 to fund the health, safety, and remote learning efforts critical to our students' education and well-being! A special thank you to the Board of Trustees and Lycee Dads' Club for their challenge gifts, the many generous donors, and the parents and students who volunteered their time for the phone-a-thon.
There is only $109,500 more to reach our Annual Fund goal of $350,000. Join the effort and help us reach our goal by donating today.
