The Annual Fund
What is the Annual Fund?
The annual fund is the school’s top fundraising priority and simply put, it bridges the gap between tuition and the total cost of educating Lipscomb Academy students. A gift to the annual fund is an important one because it supports every area of the school. Your gifts provide operating dollars that support financial aid, technology resources, spiritual formation, faculty development and more – ensuring our students receive a distinctive faith-based educational experience that prepares them to lead and serve.
While the annual fund fulfills a very important financial need, your gifts are also a reflection of your support of Lipscomb Academy's mission and its students. The theme of the annual fund is "Every Child. Every Day." which speaks to Lipscomb Academy's ongoing commitment to enriching the Mind, Body, and Soul of every student on our campus.
What is the goal?
Participation! The goal of the Lipscomb Academy Annual Fund is 100% participation from all members of our community including alumni, parents, grandparents, and faculty and staff.
Gifts of any size to the Annual Fund or to the Annual Fund Endowment. We hope our community will give generously, but regardless of the amount of the gift, your support will make a difference in the lives of our students. Gifts of all sizes are needed to reach our goals, and when everyone participates, each gift makes a big impact!
When can I give?

What is the parents' drive? When is it?
The parents' drive is a yearly, 6-week effort to encourage parent participation in the early fall. While parents may make an annual fund gift at any time, financial support early in the school year provides the maximum benefit to our students. The parents' drive effort is coordinated by the Office of Advancement and led by our Parent Ambassadors.
