Independent schools such as Lake Forest Country Day School are able to offer challenging programs because of the support demonstrated each year by generous individuals. This translates throughout our entire school family as parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty and staff, alumni parents and friends contribute to LFCDS.

Gifts to Lake Forest Country Day School can take many forms including unrestricted funds, gifts-in-kind, underwriting and restricted funds. Additionally, donors have the opportunity to support various fundraising programs including Annual Giving, the Auction, capital campaigns, restricted gifts to the endowment and planned giving.
