Laker Fund

Thanks to the generosity of caring alumni, parents, board members, grandparents and friends, we are able to provide our boys with a transformative educational experience.  The Laker Fund provides us with the flexibility to meet our most pressing financial needs and seize unique and important opportunities.

Your gift to the Laker Fund ensures that our students are engaged in real-world, experiential learning, that their opportunities are boundless and that they leave Boys’ Latin prepared to make their mark on the world. And your contributions help to close the gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of a Boys’ Latin education - nearly 20% per student.  To all our donors, thank you.

Support of the Laker Fund

Your support of The Laker Fund provides vital funding for many of the school’s most pressing needs including:

  • Financial support of our faculty and staff, including enhanced compensation and professional development.
  • Financial aid for students to ensure a diversely talented student body.
  • Academics, arts, athletics and extracurricular programs fueling intellectual exploration and creating daily experiences to explore new talents and interests. 
  • Improving and maintaining the school’s 72 rolling acres of buildings and grounds. 

The mission of Boys’ Latin endures through these unprecedented times and we remain dedicated to educating boys and young men. Contributions to The Laker Fund from our loyal donors are making a tremendous and immediate impact affording Boys’ Latin the flexibility to respond adeptly to the most urgent ongoing operational needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These contributions have helped to provide emergency tuition assistance for our families, modulars and tents to ensure a safe in-person learning environment, defrayed increased technology expenses, as well as additional health and safety precautions throughout campus. In a time of continued uncertainty, we remain humbled and grateful for the support of the Laker community.

I joined the BL community – over 50 years ago - as a seventh grade student.  Boys’ Latin has had an amazing impact on my life and I continue to love our School. I support the Laker Fund because I want to see the School remain strong and continue to positively impact current and future Lakers.

JACK H. WILLIAMS SOCIETY

Cumulative gifts of $25,000 or more to The Laker Fund entitle one membership in the Jack H. Williams Society.  Jack Williams, a 1938 Boys’ Latin alumnus, led the effort to find the property to build Boys’ Latin School on the grounds where it is located today.  A practicing attorney, Jack left his law firm in 1962 to become Boys’ Latin’s second headmaster on Lake Avenue.  Donors who consistently and generously give to Boys’ Latin, as Jack Williams did, become members of this society named in his honor.
