Ways to Give

Annual Fund

The Lexington School depends on a successful Annual Fund to help make up the difference between tuition and the full cost of educating a child. This year, “The Gap” between tuition and the cost of a TLS education is $3,600. This means that The Lexington School must raise $3,600 for every child enrolled this year.

To help meet this “Gap,” The Lexington School must raise $700,000 through the 2017-2018 Annual Fund. The Lexington School appreciates all gifts, no matter the size, and values the support of more than 750 donors each year, who demonstrate their loyalty and belief in the mission of The Lexington School through their annual gifts.
Your participation in the Annual Fund makes the experience of today's TLS students the best it has ever been. Gifts to the Annual Fund enhance The Lexington School student experience by providing funds to support:
Resources for students to produce school plays, musicals, and other productions each year;
Exciting field trips and out-of classroom lessons;
Official athletic events and team sports;
Competitive salaries and benefits for faculty;
Professional Development opportunities for teachers.


Gifts of cash or check should be sent to the Development Office. The Lexington School, 1050 Lane Allen Road, Lexington, Kentucky 40504. Checks should be made payable to The Lexington School.


The Lexington School welcomes gifts of stock or securities. When TLS receives a gift of securities, the stock is liquidated as soon as the stock transfer occurs. If you need information or would like to make a gift of stock, please contact Amanda Hale or Bob Thompson at 859-278-0501.
