An Independent School • Grades 5-12

Every gift counts.

Your support sustains all that makes Lakeside exceptional.

Message from the Director of Development

Lakeside is a philanthropic community! At Lakeside, every gift counts, no matter how large or small. Gifts of time, leadership, and resources all make a difference. Your support ensures that we can hire and retain expert teachers, provide financial aid to nearly one third of our students, and support all aspects of a Lakeside education, from academics to arts to athletics. As director of development, I see firsthand the impact that donations have on our students’ lives, and the joy that donors experience when they make such gifts. Thank you for your generosity!

Director of Development Daiga Galins
