The Latin Fund

Established in 2011, the Latin Fund is an important part of our school's financial model, supporting the annual budget and providing unrestricted, strategic funds to cover unforeseen (and unbudgeted) things like needs arising due to the current global pandemic. The Latin Fund gives the Head of School the flexibility to use these dollars when unique opportunities arise over the course of the school year and to address our ever changing needs.

The Latin Fund is critical in supporting the growth and development of our school. While tuition at Latin covers the basics, gifts to the Latin Fund demonstrate our community’s strength and belief in Latin and its mission.

Latin's faculty and staff are strong supporters of the Latin Fund, with a 96%+ participation rate since the fund's inception.

Your investment is a vote of confidence, a show of support, and commitment to excellence at Latin.

New Family Division

Inspired by Latin’s founding families, the New Family Division of the Latin Fund welcomes first-year families into our community, and encourages them to join us in supporting Latin. With near total participation for the last 19 years, the New Family Division is an important part of philanthropy at Latin.

The New Family Division has raised roughly $150,000 annually to support the Latin Fund. Gifts of $1,970+ are recognized as part of the Latin Society, and gifts of $5,000+ are recognized as part of The New Family Leadership Circle.
