Ways to Give

Your gift makes a difference and Académie Lafayette directly invests every gift back to the educational needs of current students.

Time and money

As a charter school, Académie Lafayette depends on the support of financial donors, as well as the efforts of volunteers who contribute their valuable time and talents. However you would like to be engaged in your child’s education and the school community, we gratefully welcome your participation.


Académie Lafayette, like all public schools, receives funding from state and local tax revenue. These funds, however, are not enough to support the extra enrichment and student services we provide to every student. Recent state budget cuts have made ensuring a high quality education for every student even harder. Your gift will help us continue to provide a rich academic environment as well as a safety net of services for our  diverse students.

The Annual Fund is held every year typically beginning in November. Its purpose is to raise unrestricted funds for the school through voluntary donations.

Contribute to the future of Académie Lafayette through planned giving.

Securities Gift

When you give appreciated marketable securities that you have owned for more than one year and a day, you receive a tax deduction for the full value of the gift, and neither you nor Académie Lafayette will have to pay the capital gains tax. Many donors choose to make their gift commitments with appreciated securities.

Gifts In-Kind

In-kind contributions are donations of goods, services or time instead of cash. The amount of the gift is determined by both the donor and the Development Director.

Company Matching

Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees. If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer, and send it completed and signed with your gift. Académie Lafayette will do the rest. The impact of your gift to our school may be doubled or possibly tripled! Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Click here to find out if your company offers this benefit to employees.
