Why Support Lakecrest?

Lakecrest was founded in 1993 by a group of parents in the St. John’s community. At Lakecrest the growth of the children has always been our number one priority. Since it was founded, Lakecrest has grown in numbers and it continues to strive for excellence as it heads into the future.

Annual Giving provides much needed funds for the school. These gifts are not only an investment in the school but an investment in the future of the children. As well as helping the school by providing much needed funds, all donations are also tax deductible


Annual Giving Campaign

Every year, current Lakecrest families, grandparents, faculty, alumni, members of the corporate community, and others show their support by contributing to the Annual Giving Campaign. As with most independent schools, we depend on the generosity of our school community to fund the purchase of equipment and programs that support the education of each student at Lakecrest, which is not possible through tuition alone.


What Do Annual Gifts Support?

Annual gifts support the school and helps it grow in ways that it needs. Your gift will help support:

  • Academics
  • Technology
  • Athletics
  • Drama
  • Tuition Scholarships

How else can I give?
  • Planned Giving – This is planning ahead for a future gift either through bequests, life insurance, cash securities or estate.
  • Endowment – With an Endowment the funds are invested to protect capital and create investment income, the donor in collaboration with the school may then decide how the income will be spent.
  • Corporate Matching – Many companies will match any gift that you give to charity. Ask your employer if they support matching programs.
