Guide to Giving

Giving at the Lycée

As an independent school, the Lycée receives no government funding. The School’s annual operating income consists of four sources: tuition, co-curricular activities and fees, philanthropic support, and support from the endowment. 

The Lycée depends on voluntary gifts to provide the best education possible and prepare today's students to be the thinkers, innovators and leaders of tomorrow. We are grateful to the parents, alumni, faculty and staff, and other community members who generously contribute to the school's fundraising efforts. 

The two main ways to give to the Lycée are by participating in the annual Gala, and making a gift to the Annual Fund. Restricted major gifts in support of capital projects, educational programs and the endowment are another important part of giving to the Lycée.
