Annual Fund

Give to Académie Lafayette

Each year, Académie Lafayette relies on the generosity of families, friends, extended families, grandparents, board of directors, faculty, staff and the Académie Lafayette community. The Annual Fund provides critical, unrestricted support to offset the full cost of  Académie Lafayette academic and campus needs. Our ability to grow and thrive absolutely depends on the generous support of donors. Your gifts enable construction projects, daily operations, and numerous initiatives that support our students and faculty.  Please consider a tax-deductible contribution in any amount to our annual fund as it will empower the essential support to continue thriving in educational excellence.

The Annual Fund is a critical component of daily life at Académie Lafayette.  Our school depends on these Annual Fund gifts to meet current needs at each of our campuses and provide a world-class education for our students. 

Contributing events

There are key annual events that contribute to the significant amount of the Annual Fund each year. Their purpose is to raise unrestricted funds for the school through voluntary donations and fundraising.

Annual $10,000 Cash Raffle Fundraising Event

Every September, this fundraiser becomes the most popular event with our students, parents and our community with opportunities for our students to win prizes while generating excitement for one lucky ticket-holder to win a $10,000 cash prize! Each year’s raffle allows our students to continue the tradition while learning the importance of fundraising through the fun of competing for prizes and rewards. We strive to make each year’s fundraiser the best year ever raised!

Generations Day Art Walk
Celebration Between Generations

Our Generations Day Art Walk is held in the Fall as an intimate event that will allow our students and their special guest an opportunity to spend time together, enjoying a sweet treat and sharing conversations about that special art piece created in their honor.

This event is solely for our grandparents or that special individual in our student’s life. This is an RSVP event that will be coordinated to allow students to be removed and excused from their classroom at a specific time to enjoy time with their grandparents or special guest. Each honoree, guest, as well as student will be aligned with a specific time they will be attending the art walk at each campus.
