80 in 8 - Help Us Cross the Finish Line with Your Gift or Pledge by December 31!

$550,000 Academy Fund Parent Goal

Help us cross the finish line with your gift or pledge to the Academy Fund by December 31!

Special thanks to our 80 in 8 Challenge donors, four current parent families – Mary Beth Ainsley (Lily ’22), Lina and Kaled Awada (Mazin ’23 and Sami ’24), Jen and Neal Reenan (Trevor ’25), Padmaja Guntaka and Dheeren Kommala (Akhil ’22) – who together have pledged $85,000 to inspire parent participation to reach our overall goal of $550,000 in parent giving to the Academy Fund.

Our collective impact ensures that LFA will continue to provide an excellent education to our students and support for our deserving faculty.

In this season of gratitude and giving, you can make your gift in honor of a faculty or staff member(s) who has had a special impact on your child's LFA experience. LFA will notify the honoree of your thoughtfulness, but not of the gift amount.

Checks payable to Lake Forest Academy may be mailed to: Lake Forest Academy – Office of Advancement, 1500 Kennedy Rd, Lake Forest, IL 60045 or made securely online at Gifts from Donor Advised Funds or contributions of securities are welcome:
