Support

Like most independent schools, LCIS relies on the philanthropic spirit of its community. Gifts to the school’s Annual Fund, Capital Campaign and Endowment support the implementation of the strategic vision and campus master plan.

THE COMMUNITY'S STRONG HISTORY OF GIVING has allowed LCIS to have a truly lasting impact on all of the students who have passed through the doors, and secures the same transformative experiences for those here now and those yet to come. Below are three ways your support can have a daily impact in making LCIS an excellent school.

Ways to Support LCIS

ANNUAL FUND
The Annual Fund is a forward fund. Funds raised in the current year are used in the following school year for scholarships, campus improvements, teacher professional development and to enrich the quality of education in class every day. Our community invests an average of $3,000 per student to take our school from good to great.

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
The INSPIRE•CHALLENGE•TRANSFORM Campaign is the largest fundraising project in the history of LCIS. With over $28M raised to date, the school will soon break ground on a new state-of-the art Upper School Campus.

ENDOWMENT FOR FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIPS
The Endowment for Financial Aid and Scholarships has a long history of support from parents, alumni, neighbours, foundations and corporate partners. With almost $1.5M invested, the fund supplements the annual giving that makes an LCIS education affordable for a wide range of local families.
