Tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Lakeside student's education, and the Annual Fund helps make up the difference. Your donation helps pay for everything from important things like faculty salaries and materials for classrooms to mundane things like the heating bill. Donations can be designated toward different areas: arts, athletics, financial aid, faculty excellence, educational excellence, and greatest need. You can also give in honor of a teacher who has impacted your student's life.

Last school year, 90 percent of families donated to the Annual Fund. We aim for 100 percent participation this year. As of mid-December, 61 percent of Lakeside parents and guardians have donated to the Annual Fund, for a combined total of over $1.6 million; that's 67 percent of our $2.4 million goal. Gifts of every size are important to sustaining the Lakeside experience. Please give at

Thank you for considering a gift to Lakeside — and have a wonderful start to 2019.
