Support Us Children

Annual Fund

Support the Annual Fund

Each year, all the members of the Lesley Ellis community – current parents, alumni families, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends of the school – are invited to participate in the Annual Fund. We encourage:

  • all current parents to make Lesley Ellis their highest philanthropic priority while their children are at school; and
  • everyone to give as generously as family circumstances allow.

Giving what you can is an important way to show your support for Lesley Ellis and our children. Every gift of every size contributes to our success.

Why Giving is Important

Like many other independent schools, Lesley Ellis is funded through tuition, fees for optional vacation and afterschool programs, and contributions to its Annual Fund. Giving to the Annual Fund represents a special opportunity for our current families and members of our extended community to come together and make a significant impact on our school.

Make a Gift

We hope that everyone will join together to invest in the ongoing success of Lesley Ellis by making a generous contribution to this year’s Annual Fund.
For further information about making a gift, please contact Jen Hodgdon in the Development Office at 781-641-5987 ext. 1212.15 or

Tuesday, November 29th is #GivingTuesday

Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many people focus on holiday and end-of-year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy.

The Lesley Ellis community kicks off its fundraising for the Lesley Ellis Annual Fund and the Jon Pfeifer Memorial Funds in conjunction with this national event. We hope that you will make LES a philanthropic priority and invite you to make your commitment to LES beginning on November 29th. It's quick, easy, and convenient to give to Lesley Ellis. You can do it online here. Thank you for your generosity and support.
