Behind every dollar donated, lies a story.

The story begins with passionate educators, brilliant students, talented performing artists, devoted athletes and a supportive community of parents working together to make ULS extraordinary. With your help, ULS will continue to provide an exceptional educational experience for every student now and into the future.

The Laker Fund:
Support Now

Did you know there is a $5,800 gap between tuition and the actual cost of a ULS education? You can help fill that gap now with a gift to the Laker Fund which supports major operating expenses of the school—need-based scholarships, teacher compensation and classroom budgets.

Special Events:
Giving Together

Depending on the time of year, there are opportunities for giving in conjunction with events. The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving, ULS participates in the international day of philanthropy, #GivingTuesday. In late April, the entire Lake community is invited to an event with a live and silent auction to support our teachers and students. Update your contact info to be alerted to these opportunities.

The De Peyster Society:
Future Support

Many Lakers who join The de Peyster Society direct their gift to the ULS Endowment which further strengthens the school’s financial future. This society was formed in honor of ULS’ first Headmaster, Joseph B. de Peyster, and recognizes those individuals who have designated ULS in their will or estate plans. To learn more about your options, contact Assistant Director of Alumni & Donor Relations, Kala Montoya.

Laker Leadership Circle

Paving a way at ULS.

Through their generosity, members of the Laker Leadership Circle make a special difference in the lives of students and teachers, and to our programs.

Members of the Laker Leadership Circle enjoy special insider communications, event invitations and recognition throughout the year.

Supporters at this level make the greatest difference for our students and teachers by helping the school reach for the next big milestone.

Trying new programs and recruiting top-notch teachers and students of all backgrounds needs supporters willing to invest at this level.

Supporters at this level begin to close "the gap" between tuition and the actual cost of a ULS education.

“I give to ULS because it is the least I can do for a school that I feel has done so much for me.”

Star '08

“I still feel a great connection to ULS. I am proud to support my school and the students that have come after me.”

Peter '89

“As an alumnus and current parent, my wife and I elect to contribute what we can to help bridge the gap between tuition and the costs of operating the school at such a high level.”
