Ways to Give

We greatly appreciate all the different ways in which the families and friends of LIH give throughout the year. Your investment makes a difference. Please explore the options below to maximize your support and contribute in a way which is most meaningful to you. Thank you for making LIH possible!

Fundraising Initiatives

ANNUAL FUND

Annual Fund gifts have the greatest impact, as they demonstrate commitment to the unique vision, mission, and core values of our school without associated event expenses. Proceeds from our Annual Fund support educational programming, curriculum development, and school enhancements.

We recognize there are varying means of giving within our community. Every gift matters, and any amount, no matter how small is welcome and appreciated.

Community Events

SPRING GALA

Our Spring Gala brings family members together to celebrate and support LIH. This event is hosted offsite and is held between February and April annually. We are proudest of the annual art auction. LIH students work with their class to create a group art project. These creations are auctioned off and will go home with the winning bidder. Other event highlights include a silent and live auction, raffle, dinner, dancing and much more.

 

FUNd RUN

Our LIH students anxiously await our FUNd Run each and every year. This event promotes healthy and active lifestyles while also supporting the school through the fund drive. LIH students ask families and friends to give one-time gifts or per lap pledges and then they’re off! Participating students run laps around the school while being cheered on by their adoring fans culminating in community celebrations.

Event family sponsorships are available as well. By sponsoring this event, LIH families will receive recognition at the event, inclusion in our marketing materials, and our ongoing appreciation!

FAMILY DAY!

LIH celebrates the various cultures and families which make up our diverse community. On Family Day, we ask invite all the extended families who love and support our students to come on campus, get a sneak peek at the children’s educational experience, and then we celebrate them! Families are asked to share their family background and history and students showcase their families through class projects.
