In November 2006, the Lakeside High School Foundation, Inc. announced the formation of a nonprofit corporation and has since received full 501(c)(3) status.
At the Foundation Kick-off Dinner, the goals and mission of the Lakeside High School Foundation were presented. This event launched the Inaugural Year Donation Program, an opportunity for all donors of $1,000 or more being permanently recognized on a bronze plaque that will be mounted in the front entrance of Lakeside . It was with great pleasure and appreciation by the Foundation to accept the first $5,000 donation from community business leader Chuck Smith.
The Kick-off Dinner not only raised funds for the Lakeside Foundation, but it also gave the attendees the opportunity to submit their ideas for projects and suggestions. From these submissions, the Foundation noticed a common theme and decided to focus their energy and fundraising efforts in support of the staff and students in the areas of Academics, the Arts, Athletics, as well as involving the Alumni of Lakeside High School.
The Lakeside Foundation plans to provide Lakeside High School with teacher grants, student scholarships, physical plant improvements and educational enhancements, and eventually establish an endowment that will fund projects for many years to come. But this cannot be done without the continued support of the Lakeside community. If you are not a current donor, we encourage you to become one today!
