2022-2023 Give Green/Be Gold

Last year the Comeback Campaign shattered our previous Annual Appeal records and we are looking forward to another successful year in 2022.  As we start this new year, we are again asking every family to be a part of the Friends of Lane Annual Campaign of 2022-2023.  Your generous contributions funded many improvements to our facilities including a brand new Sound System in the auditorium, New Drivers Ed Simulators, maintaining the Clock Tower to keep it working and shining above our school, the ability to fund Teacher Grants, as well as general building repairs including improvements to bathrooms, water fountains, renovated gyms and locker rooms, updated classrooms, technology equipment for our students and more!

 

Our goal for this year’s Annual Appeal is 100% Lane Family participation. 96% of the CPS budget pays our amazing teachers’ salaries, but it is your dollars that keep Lane at the top of the list. Your donations enable us to add critical resources giving our students an unparalleled learning environment. 

 

Remember:  

  • Payments can be made in monthly installments so you can spread your contribution out over the year.

  • All contributions are tax-deductible. 

  • The suggested contribution per family is $1,200, however, any level of contribution is appreciated - $1,000, $500, $250 or whatever amount is right for your family.

  • Every bit counts - With over 4500 students, a contribution from every family of even $20, $50 or $100 will add up to make a huge impact on Lane.

 

We appreciate your consideration in keeping Lane the true School of Champions! Donate today and thank you for your support of the Annual Appeal!
