The Annual Fund

General Information

Providing critical yearly support to our operating budget through the generous donations of friends and families of the Lycée, the Annual Fund makes possible every aspect of a Lycée education and allows us to achieve our mission of preparing students to be responsible citizens equipped for the world of tomorrow.

The Annual Fund supports all facets of the tremendous educational opportunity, from improvements in curriculum, classroom supplies, technology advancements, staff recruitment and retention, and sports equipment, to financial aid for qualified students who may not otherwise be able to attend the Lycée.

Gifts and pledges to the Annual Fund are accepted throughout the school year through June 30.  Pledges can be made at the beginning of the year and fulfilled before June 30. 

Please make your gift or pledge today.

What does the Annual Fund support?

Nothing is more vital to the annual operating budget of the Lycée than the unrestricted support provided by the Annual Fund. This support funds the Lycée’s immediate needs on an annual basis and provides support for extra programs. Some examples of what the Annual Fund supports:

  • Scholarships
  • Technology updates
  • Field trips
  • Faculty support and development
  • Cultural Center and artist in residence programming

What is POP?

The Power of Participation Challenge, or “POP Challenge,” is a yearly Annual Fund campaign. The challenge, which runs the course of one month, is designed to raise family participation for the Annual Fund. Outreach is primarily conducted by volunteers and the development office.

Families who have already made their gift or pledge to the Annual Fund during the year are counted in the starting participation. All families who have not yet participated in the Annual Fund are encouraged to make a donation of any size during the course of the challenge.

Don’t delay, make your gift today and join in the fun!

If you’ve already made your contribution it counts towards your child’s grade total. All gifts made prior to June 30 will count towards the participation challenge.
