Capital & Endowment Giving

While the Annual Fund is used for annual expenses, capital and endowed gifts are used for building and special projects. The Annual Fund helps us live. Capital funds help us grow.

Recent contributions have helped to:
• Renovate classrooms and dorms.

• Install security and safety infrastructure, including Fiber Optic cable and Wi-Fi.

• Build the Headmaster’s home as a central gathering place.

• Build a state-of-the-art Science wing, including two additional labs.

Gifts to the endowment help to secure the school’s long-term financial stability—and to fund current priorities through ongoing interest generated by the endowment. Endowment gifts benefit our current students as well as those of future generations.

By establishing an endowed fund or contributing to an existing fund, you can support La Lumiere in several ways:
• A scholarship fund to help make a La Lumiere education possible for deserving students.

• An endowed fund to support academic departments, technology, athletics, or faculty enrichment.

• An endowed faculty chair to attract and retain the finest teachers.

• A fund in honor or in memory of a beloved family member or teacher.

To discuss La Lumiere’s needs and how you can help, please contact Meg Stipany, Major Gifts Officer, at 219.326.7450.
