Annual Giving

The Latin Fund

Since its founding in 1970, Charlotte Latin has benefited from the generosity of the members of the Latin community. This tradition continues annually through gifts to the Latin Fund, which was launched in 2011 to sustain Latin's ability to realize its mission, to uphold the core values, and to ensure the School's long-term financial health from this consistent source of broad-based, voluntary giving.

The Latin Fund helps prepare Latin to address emergent needs while moderating tuition increases and sustaining Charlotte Latin School's commitment to educational excellence for our students. Gifts to the Latin Fund support operating costs that touch every aspect of Latin, such as a broad range of educational enhancements, experiential learning, technological improvements, student safety, and professional development opportunities that help the School attract and retain a dedicated faculty and staff.

If you have questions about the Latin Fund, please contact Director of the Latin Fund Katie Sutton at 704.841.7464 or

New Family Division

The New Family Division of the Latin Fund is a time-honored tradition at Charlotte Latin. For the last fourteen years, 100% of Latin's new families have supported the initiative with a gift to the School. Historically, this appeal has provided substantial revenue for new buildings, educational programs, and Latin's endowment. In the fall of 2013, the New Family Campaign became a division of the Latin Fund. Please direct any questions regarding the New Family Division to Director of the Latin Fund Katie Sutton at 704.841.7464 or
