Securities Transfers

LFA's partner vendor securely processes cryptocurrency on our behalf. The Academy does not hold cryptocurrency as a part of its investment portfolio. Our vendor researches the source of the crypto and then converts it to USD. LFA then receives the cash donation.

Donor Advised Funds

LFA is qualified to receive grants from Donor Advised Funds. Please contact Nancy Bateman at 847-615-3212 to discuss grant options with an LFA representative.

Gifts in Kinds

Lake Forest Academy is grateful for non-monetary gifts which can be used in our programs. Please contact Nancy Bateman at 847-615-3212 to arrange a gift in kind.

Give-Back Programs

Did you know that as well as being an independent school, LFA is also a registered 501(c)(3)charity? This means that the Academy may qualify for retail or company give-back programs. These funds augment the Academy Fund and are very appreciated. In addition to your annual donation, you can help LFA through your employer or weekly shopping.
