"Oui" Fund the Future

LFC Center for the Arts Classroom

2024 Project: The LFC Center for the Arts

Renderings are inspirational. Final elements depend on funds raised.

The 2024 Oui" Fund the Future project is dedicated to the creation of a nearby, off-campus LFC Center for the Arts, which will increase the variety of arts programming available to all students while freeing up room on campus to help alleviate some of the secondary school’s existing space issues. 

This nearby, off-campus space will develop arts of all kinds, from visual arts and music to exhibitions and performances.

We are currently seeking donations to match our ambitious $250,000 goal, which will be used to launch our expanded arts programming and purchase related supplies. Huge bonus: it will help unlock a foundational $100,000 grant from the Edward E. Ford Foundation.

Imagine a Dedicated Arts Center... 

...where Primary School students can:

  • participate in after school and summer camp programming,
  • watch or take part in small performances on a dedicated platform stage,
  • interact with visiting artist,
  • record podcasts in a sound booth and
  • create pottery.

...where Secondary school students can:

  • attend weekly art classes,
  • use graphic design tools and other art-making technology,
  • use a kiln,
  • perform in front of an audience,
  • benefit from expanded space in the secondary school.

Ensuring a vibrant LFC.

Meeting the evolving needs of students and teachers is at the heart of the “Oui” Fund the Future initiative. 

Each year, the LFC raises funds for a project to enhance the school, selected by evaluating student and teacher needs and in conjunction with the school's master planning vision. Through funds raised leading up to and at La Soirée, we create a more vibrant and inviting educational environment where our students and teachers feel supported and engaged.

Together, “Oui” Fund the Future of the LFC!
