As an independent school, we rely on the generosity of our families and friends. Gifts of all kinds and all sizes are greatly appreciated. Below are ways your voluntary support can impact our community and your family’s experience at LREI.
Ways to Support LREI
The Fund for LREI
The Fund for LREI, the new name of the Annual Fund, is the cornerstone of the school’s fundraising efforts. Each year, LREI relies on unrestricted Fund for LREI contributions to provide educational resources for students and faculty not covered by tuition alone. Your gift is an investment in LREI's remarkable educational experience.

Building for Action
Capital campaigns raise funds for major building projects and renovations, increased endowment funds and other substantial needs that fall outside of the scope of our annual operating budget. Learn more about our most recent campaign, Building for Action.

Director’s Initiatives
From time to time, our administration identifies a particular program or facility need and will seek funding from the LREI community. These restricted gifts are for a specific purpose and are separate from the Annual Fund.

Legacy Gifts
Legacy gifts most often are made through a trust, annuity, insurance policy or bequest. The Elisabeth Irwin Heritage Society recognizes members of the community who make charitable provisions for LREI.

Matching Gifts
Many companies will match employees’ gifts to non-profit organizations. To take advantage of these programs, ask your Human Resources department for a matching gift form, then complete and return it to LREI with your gift.

Volunteer Opportunities
In addition to essential financial support, we rely on the tremendous volunteer spirit in our community. Whether creating a school-wide event or joining a committee, acting as a class parent or organizing one of our annual auctions, dedicated parents make our community who we are.
