Make a Difference and Support the Annual Fund

Tuition alone does not cover the total cost of educating a student at Lacordaire. 
Donations supplement tuition and help us to meet our operating budget. 

Your gift to Lacordaire makes so much possible:

Small Class Size

Campus Maintenance & Improvements

Student Field Trips
& Outings

Upgrades to Technology

Professional Development for Faculty & Staff

Enhancements to Classrooms

Every gift benefits every student.

Why doesn’t tuition cover all of the education cost?

Parents, alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, friends, and foundations.

How is my Annual Fund gift used?

Your gift is used for school programming, updates to classrooms and facilities, technology upgrades, professional development for faculty & staff, general maintenance, and more!
