How to Give


Lake Ridge Academy’s secure giving site offers 24/7 convenience of giving over the Internet via credit card. Please click the "donate" button below to make your gift online.  

Help earn up to $85,000 more! Until the start of spring break (March 19, 2016), the Board of Directors will match every new or increased Annual Fund gift or pledge over last year up to $85,000.

• If you did not make an Annual Fund gift last year, your entire gift will be matched by the Board this year.

• If you made an Annual Fund gift last year and choose to increase your gift this year, the increment will be matched by the Board.

* The amount of your earned match will be determined by your giving to the Annual Fund in this fiscal year until the challenge deadline (July 1, 2015 through March 19, 2016) compared to your giving to the Annual Fund last year (between July 1, 2014 and June 30, 2015).
