Ways to Give
Giving to La Lumiere School
The tradition of philanthropy at La Lumiere School began with its founding in 1963 and continues today, more than 50 years later. This history of generous support from alumni, parents, and friends of La Lumiere is extraordinary and helps to ensure that students can live and learn in an environment that will foster their growth as leaders of character, scholarship, and faith.
Gifts made to the Annual Fund are unrestricted. They constitute a flexible resource that allows La Lumiere to meet the operational needs of the school, and help to support its strategic plan and mission. All gifts, whether large or small, benefit and sustain the vitality of the School.
Capital and Endowment Giving
Capital and Endowment gifts may also be referred to as “major gifts”. They are very generous gifts that can have an immediate impact on the life of La Lumiere. These gifts can help the School realize its strategic goals such as the addition of a dormitory or faculty housing, new athletic facilities, a new academic program, or the establishment of a permanent endowment. Donors can select a specific purpose that matches their personal interests with the needs and priorities of the School.
Planned gifts such as bequests, annuities, and charitable remainder trusts provide income to La Lumiere that benefits the School in the future or over a period of years. Often, planned gifts can simultaneously provide the donor favorable tax implications and can be a key component in estate planning.
La Lumiere’s Annual Events
Each year our community comes together for our Golf Outing, Alumni Reunions and the Spring Auction. Each gathering provides the opportunity for members of our community to come together and share in a memorable evening while raising funds (and paddles!) in support of La Lumiere.
Donations from our overseas parents and alumni are very important to La Lumiere School. In February 2015, we established an account with a service called Peer Transfer. Peer Transfer offers our constituents an innovative and streamlined way to make international donations. It’s fast, simple and cost effective.
