The Lafayette Christian School Foundation (LCS Foundation) exists to preserve the future and legacy of Lafayette Christian School. Your gift to the foundation is an investment in future generations of students.
Annually, the LCS Foundation contributes approximately $20,000 towards operations of the school, and that amount grows every year as investments in our endowment continue to grow.
