Give Today

Like all independent schools, MSLF relies on contributions from its community to bring alive our mission and vision. Financial contributions allow MSLF to direct funds to educational initiatives that tuition alone does not cover. MSLF’s Annual Giving Campaign and Annual Benefit represent the major opportunities for contribution. In addition, we welcome everyone in the MSLF community to make a gift to honor or remember a loved one.

giftYour kind contribution allows children to reach their full potential here at MSLF via funding necessary capital improvements, supplying classrooms with superior materials and supplies, providing continuing education opportunities for our outstanding faculty, and offering financial aid to qualified families. All donations are tax-deductible, and we very much appreciate your donation.

For more information, visit our MSLF Annual Giving Campaign page.

Paying by Check

Please make checks payable to the Montessori School of Lake Forest and mail to our Administrative Director, Teresa Pavelich, at 13700 W. Laurel Drive, Lake Forest, IL, 60045.

Gifts of Stock

Making a gift of stock offers you the chance to help MSLF while realizing many important benefits for yourself. A stock portfolio is often among the most valuable assets you own, and one that carries a substantial capital gains tax. With careful planning, you can reduce or even avoid federal capital gains tax by gifting stock to our school. Because of our nonprofit status, MSLF does not pay a capital gains tax when we sell the gifted stock.

Please visit our Stock Donation page or contact Tiffany Natale in our Business Office with additional questions.
