Giving at Lakehill


The Annual Fund Campaign

The Annual Fund Campaign is the foundation of Lakehill’s financial health. Tuition at Lakehill, like most private schools, does not cover all the educational costs for our children. Donations to the Annual Fund should always be considered first, as they go directly to the operating budget to bridge the tuition income shortfall gap. Contributions to the Annual Fund provide support that is used for a variety of operating expenses, including faculty salaries, academics, arts, and athletics, to name only a few. Every gift, no matter its size, makes a difference and allows us to continue to provide support for Lakehill faculty and students. Gifts can be made to The Annual Fund Campaign at any time during the year and are tax-deductible.

The Opening Doors Capital Campaign

The Opening Doors Capital Campaign is an effort to raise funding for the essential expansion and renovation of the original Lakehill Preparatory School building. Over the past four and one-half decades in the facility, Lakehill has provided quality private education for talented children. With current enrollment at its highest level since the school opened its doors in 1971, the existing facility has reached maximum capacity.

In order to continue the Lakehill standard of quality private education, construction was recently completed to renovate 8,000 square feet of existing space and add 16,000 square feet of new space to the original building. This vital effort produces new lab spaces for science, writing, and computer science, as well as an art studio. It also provides new classrooms, meeting and event rooms, administrative offices, and bathrooms. A dramatic 5,000 square foot inner courtyard offers outdoor classroom and performance space.

Please consider Opening Doors of opportunity for our current and future students by making your tax-deductible gift today. Generous pledges may be fulfilled in increments of up to three years. We earnestly solicit your support for this crucial project.

Parent Faculty Club

Lakehill is very fortunate to have a well-organized and active Parent Faculty Club. This group provides incredible support by donating their time, talents, and resources to virtually every aspect of our school throughout the year. It is extremely important to Lakehill that the fundraising efforts of the PFC be successful.

The group has two large-scale fundraisers each year. Trek for Tech is a Fun Run and sanctioned 5K in the fall that raises money to provide for our school’s technology needs. The PFC Auction is a Gala Event in the spring that provides a majority of the money that the PFC gives each year to support the school.

Donor Designated Gifts

Donor Designated Gifts may also be made at any time throughout the year. Tax- deductible gifts may be given to support specific areas, departments, or programs within Lakehill Preparatory School, such as Student Scholarships or the Computer Science Department.

The most meaningful Donor Designated Gifts are often made through Planned Giving or Estate Planning. The Office of Development is experienced in all aspects of Planned Giving and is available to work with your financial and tax planning professionals.
