As an independent school, the holistic school experience LFA delivers is only possible because of gifts we receive – both to enrich the day-to-day experience and to deliver capital improvements. There is no other funding from parishes, the Archdiocese, or the Sisters of St. Ann. This year, we saw philanthropic support of more than $900,000 across annual giving, capital gifts, and endowment support. The generosity and leadership of our community is foundational to a truly extraordinary Catholic, girls' education: arguably one of the best in the country.
Gifts to the school are immediately invested in the programs, resources, and opportunities that make an LFA education so exceptional. This year, gifts of nearly $400,000 have made each girl’s experience truly enriching and memorable.
As you might be aware, LFA is currently on the precipice of a truly visionary project that will see us modernize our campus. As we strive to provide the most complete Catholic education to our students, our campus will evolve to reflect the boundless potential of every student that walks our halls. In response, capital giving this year was incredibly strong as we saw over $500,000 in gifts. Over $460,000 of those funds are directed towards laying the groundwork for our visionary campus transformation. The other approximately $40,000 are committed to the LFA Foundation’s Endowment Fund; an investment in the long-term financial health of the school.
Walkathon and Viva Las Vegas
Our annual Walkathon serves as a great opportunity for students to understand the community ownership that fuels LFA. This year, our students did an incredible job and raised over $56,000! We also saw the return of our main Parents Auxiliary fundraising event, Viva Las Vegas! The night was as glitzy and glamorous as ever and all funds raised went directly towards campus technology upgrades for our students.
