Each year all members of the LMS community (current and past parents, Board members, alumni, grandparents, faculty & staff and friends of the School) are asked to make a meaningful and positive difference in the lives of all LMS children by contributing to LMS’ Annual Giving Program.
Because tuition revenues intentionally cover approximately 80% of the real cost of educating an LMS student, Annual Giving is an essential element of our overall operating budget. It is these gifts, in part, that enable LMS to advance its unique mission.
The LMS Annual Giving Program provides critical support for the daily school experience of all LMS students, faculty and staff. When contributing to LMS' 2012 - 2013 Annual Giving Program, you may choose to designate your gift to the following areas:
|Promote Educational Ideas and Innovation
||Enrich & Support our Teachers and Staff
||Keep LMS Accessible to & Inclusive of all Families
||Enhance Whole-Child Learning
||Compensation (salaries & benefits)
||Enrich Arts, Music, Spanish & Physical Education
|Integration of technology, service learning, and international connections
||Conferences and education courses
||Moderate tuition increases
||Classroom materials that complement whole-child education
All annual gifts are unrestricted and will go to the budget-relieving area designated by each donor. Any overflow of the gift will go towards LMS' areas of greatest need in the current year.
Each and every gift is vitally important to LMS. All members of our community are encouraged to make a gift that is personally significant. In other words, we ask that everyone give and that those who are able give more. Each gift is a reflection of caring and concern for the well being of LMS and our children and we are extremely grateful for every gift.
It is the collective spirit of generosity from the LMS community that will help us continue to provide an amazing educational experience for all LMS children. Thank you...
