What is the Lauralton Annual Fund?
Annual gifts made to the Lauralton Fund provide support for Lauralton’s current-year operating expenses. It is the largest, all-inclusive, year-long fundraising campaign that generates unrestricted contributions to maximize the resources at hand to enhance all areas of the school -- above and beyond what tuition dollars support. Continued enhancements to technology, increased faculty professional development and financial aid opportunities are all made possible through a vibrant and robust Annual Fund.

What is our goal for this 2019-20 academic year?
Our goal is to raise $500,000 this year and increase our participation comparable to our independent school peers. We encourage all parents, alumnae, and friends to support the Lauralton Fund with a gift of any size. Collective support is key to our success!

When may I donate?
The 2019-20 Annual Fund begins on July 1, 2019 and ends on June 30, 2020. You may make a donation at any time during this period. You also may pledge to donate at any time during this period and make payment by June 30. All pledges count for participation credit at the time the pledge is made!

What forms of payment may I use to support the Lauralton Fund?
We welcome gifts made by cash, check, credit card, or securities. Appreciated securities can also be an advantageous way to make a gift and to avoid capital gains tax. You may also make an online donation via our website.

What is the President’s Circle?
All donations at the $1,000 level and above will be recognized as leadership gifts and are included in the President’s Circle. Thanks to the continued generosity of our parents, alumnae, and friends the leadership circle at Lauralton continues to grow.
