The Appleton Mason Society recognizes individuals who share a vision for Lake Forest Country Day School and are willing to provide for the School in their estate plans. Named after Appleton Mason, a man who was dedicated to independent school education and became the first Headmaster of the consolidated Lake Forest Country Day School in 1958, this important society allows people to leave their own legacy at LFCDS.

The commitments of Society members constitute one of Lake Forest Country Day School’s most valuable assets. Individuals who provide for LFCDS in their estate plans will be recognized in perpetuity as members of the Appleton Mason Society. The School will acknowledge membership in the Society when you recognize that a specific provision for LFCDS has been made in your will. Of course, LFCDS will honor any request for gifts to remain anonymous.

In addition to bequests, other gift-planning opportunities can provide significant benefits to families while at the same time furnish valuable support to LFCDS. Please consult your estate planning professionals to discuss your estate plans or other types of deferred contributions to Lake Forest Country Day School.

For more information, please contact Sarah Thomas, Director of Development, at or (847) 234-2350.
