YOUR support Makes All the Difference
Private contributions and endowment income play a major role in enabling LA to offer programs that meet the needs of all students at all levels. LA’s tuition is set by the State of Maine in December of each year. The amount is based on average costs in the State and does not include any provision for capital construction or renovation projects. The additional ‘Insured Value’ charge (currently 5% of tuition) does not even cover the normal maintenance projects needed by a school with buildings built between 1827 and 2006.
Unrestricted contributions and income from the endowment add directly to the operations budget each year. Without these two sources of income, the education students receive at LA would be severely diminished.
The Board of Trustees and staff are sincerely grateful for this support that has meant so much to so many at LA.
ANNUAL FUND VOLUNTEERS
Building a network of Annual Fund volunteers is critical to LA development efforts. Already, the more than than fifty volunteers this year have had a tremendous impact on increasing giving and participation. As an Annual Fund volunteer, you can help by making contacts via phone, personal notes, or email to encourage financial support of LA.
