Your Gift Matters

Your gift helps us fulfill our mission: providing students with a rigorous and innovative education in a diverse community and inspiring them to lead lives of purpose and excellence.

Thank you for changing the lives of students today and creating the leaders of tomorrow.

We invite you to explore the various ways you can have a direct impact at Latin. Learn about the endowment, annual fund, planned giving, Leadership giving, memorial and honorary gifts, and more.

Types of Gifts


A healthy endowment ensures that our values and priorities, rather than external forces, influence school decision-making and success. Learn more.

Latin Fund

As the cornerstone of our fundraising efforts each year, this fund means the difference between a very good school and a great one for our students. Formerly known as the Annual Fund, this provides substantial resources for the school’s most important priorities: financial aid, faculty support and educational program. Learn more.

Scholarship Dinner

Latin's biennial event is held every year in the spring. The evening includes a live auction as well as food and fun. Learn more.

Leadership Giving

Leadership gifts can be directed toward a variety of purposes that touch every part of the school and are central to Latin's mission. Learn more.

Planned Giving

Inspire the next generation of life-long learners by including Latin in your estate plans. Learn more.

Matching Gifts

If you or your spouse work for a company that matches gifts, you may be able to multiply your impact! You would be recognized for the total amount contributed, your gift plus the match. Find out if your company would match your gift to Latin:

Marketable Securities

A gift of appreciated securities that you have held for more than one year can sometimes be the most economical way to give.

You will be eligible to take a federal income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift (for up to 30 percent of your adjusted gross income) and will not have to recognize the appreciation as capital gain.

Other assets

Gifts to Latin can come in the form of other assets as well. For example, you may wish to consider gifts of closely held stock, real estate, or tangible personal property if its use is related to Latin’s educational mission.

Have an idea? Get in touch – we would love to hear about it. Please contact the Development team via email or by calling (312) 582-6049.
