ELEVATE HIGHLANDERS FOR GENERATIONS TO COME

ENDOWMENT

ENDOWMENT

Your gift to endowment is a vital investment in Highlanders of tomorrow. It is an enduring gift that will support programs and initiatives that are meaningful to you in perpetuity. An endowment’s principal is preserved – never spent – and its earnings provide continued support for generations to come.

PRIORITY areas for ENDOWMENT growth

Lake Highland’s endowment is relatively new and is significantly smaller than those of many peer schools. As our endowment grows, Lake Highland receives more income from endowment investments to support operations and designated purposes, like financial aid, leadership and character programs, faculty enrichment, and STEM.

Our Elevate Highlanders goal is to grow our endowment by $2 million.
Give to an existing endowment or establish a new, named endowment with a gift of $100,000 or more.

STORIES OF IMPACT

TOGETHER WE CAN

We give because our family loves and feels privileged to be a part of LHP. Giving to the Highlander Fund is one way we can give back and show our gratitude for the community that is helping us educate and shape the lives of our children.

JASON AND LORENA ACOSTA, PARENTS OF TWO HIGHLANDERS

Chances to significantly impact the future are few and fleeting! Our Elevate Highlanders' dreams, like newly planted trees under whose shade we may never sit, will long be beloved and cherished not only for themselves, but also for the sake of our children and our children’s children. The time is now to move beyond the good and go for the great!

Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Ret.) Al Harms

A Highlander has a mind for achievement, a body for competition, and a spirit for service. Our families, faculty, administrators, and coaches are all working together to create a better world, one student at a time. Be a part of our story!

Jeff Deery '82, Chairman of the Board of Trustees

We hope our gift to the Elevate Highlanders Campaign will inspire others who believe that an investment in Lake Highland’s future benefits us all. It is a gift that will last well beyond our own Highlanders’ years at LHP. Ultimately, we believe in the power of education to transform communities and lives, and we know the school will steward our gift with responsibility, care, and commitment to mission.

Tina & David Kind, Parents
