GivingCharlotte Latin School is the fortunate beneficiary of a very generous community. Gifts to Latin support specific needs or enhancements related to teaching and learning, operations, capital improvements, endowment, and special projects. Each giving area seeks support from the entire Latin community and it ensures that the School is prepared to remain competitive in an ever-changing and evolving educational landscape.
Gifts to The Latin Fund support the operating budget, helping to maintain the health and vibrancy of a Latin education. The Latin Fund helps support student financial assistance, the outstanding faculty, upgraded technology and equipment, and care of the campus.
Periodic capital campaigns secure Latin's future success while also addressing current needs. Capital campaigns ensure that Latin is able to add and improve facilities to create the very best learning environment for students.
A strong endowment reflects careful planning for the future. Endowment support comes through direct unrestricted endowment contributions, planned gifts or bequests, or restricted contributions with a specific designation. Endowment funds are invested for long-term growth while the interest income is used to support needs such as faculty professional development, learning resources, student financial assistance, and more. Charlotte Latin's policy limits the maximum annual endowment draw to 5.5 percent.
Charlotte Latin School is responsible for its own funding. Like all independent schools, Latin does not receive any revenue from local, state, or federal taxes. Additionally, tuition and fees alone do not cover the full cost of educating a student, so the School depends upon parents, alumni, alumni parents, grandparents, and friends to support the School by making generous, tax-deductible gifts.
Only through a long legacy of giving will Latin remain one of the premier schools in the country—sought after by dedicated teachers as the ideal school in which to teach, and by parents as the ideal school in which to educate their children.
