Way to Give

Matching Gifts

In the event that your place of employment provides a gift matching program, we cordially request that you enclose the corresponding form from your organization with your contribution to the Lycée. We will ensure that the form is returned to your employer upon receipt; your employer will then issue a matched contribution directly to the Lycée. Kindly be informed that in your capacity as a Lycée donor, you will receive recognition for both your initial contribution and the corresponding matched amount.

Gala Event

The Gala serves as the preeminent annual fundraising event for the institution. We annually mark this occasion on our calendar with enthusiasm, as it combines gastronomy, dance, and a communal observance of our shared values. At this event, an annual tradition is upheld of honoring an individual who exemplifies the mission of the educational institution. It provides a venue for members of our community to unite in support of the school through the purchase of tickets and the donation of auction items. In addition, businesses and corporate entities contribute to this occasion through their endorsement and donation of merchandise for the auction.

Pledge Now, Pay Later

Your commitment to the LIH Fund is greatly appreciated in the form of a pledge. Pledge fulfillment may take place at any point prior to June 5th. A pledge is, in essence, a commitment to make a contribution at a later time. By choosing to make your pledge early in the academic year, you afford LIH the assurance that your generous contribution will be forthcoming, which enables you to select a convenient time for donation (including tax implications). Additionally, this gives LIH the assurance that it can fund improvements throughout the year, secure in the knowledge that your contribution is forthcoming.

Fund

The Fund for LIH provides supplementary funding that allows the institution to maintain operations in excess of the amount covered by tuition fees. This entails the improvement of LIH’s information technology infrastructure and the enhancement of financial assistance provisions for meritorious students. Your contribution can be designated as either an Unrestricted Gift, which has an immediate impact on the LIH experience for every student, or a Restricted Gift, which can be allocated to particular programs such as STEM, arts, or athletics.

Annual Fund

Giving every year makes an impact every day! Please contribute to our Annual Fund.

What is an annual fund?

Donations are raised for the Annual Fund by the LIH Foundation on a yearly basis to support the general operations of the school.

Support raised through the Annual Fund is instrumental to any organization’s development efforts. For LIH, the Annual Fund provides a reliable source of income that is necessary to maintain steady growth a balanced budget, and help with forecasting as we plan for the future.

As an independent school, LIH does not receive money from local, state, or federal taxes. LIH relies on wise stewardship, tuition income, extracurricular activities, contributions to the Annual Fund, and other fundraising efforts in order to meet operating expenses.
