Support Our School
Through the hard work and dedication of our current and alumni families, LCNS has met the needs of children and families for over 60 years. We are proud of the friendships, supportive environment and history that make LCNS a vibrant cooperative community. When you contribute to LCNS, you can see your money at work each day supporting children and families through scholarships, development of programs, maintenance of our much-loved building and a creative curriculum. And glitter... lots and lots of glitter!!
Donations can be made via check or Paypal. Direct donations support our daily operations, including our scholarship fund, but they may also be designated for a specific purpose by the donor, such as new playground equipment, teacher bonuses, etc. As a federally recognized 501(c)(03), contributions made to LCNS are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by federal law.
