Gifts to Lycée Français help us offer unique opportunities to our students, facilitate the ambitious expansion to the Priestley building, and of course, strengthen our Thinking Outside the Classroom. This program allows us to educate our students through experiential, hands-on learning throughout New Orleans. Partnerships with the Audubon Nature Institute, National Park Service, Ogden Museum, Cascade Stables, Coastal Roots, Louisiana State Museum, Loyola KEY and FabLab, among others, allow the school to create educational opportunities that are immersive, hands-on, and unforgettable.
We are looking for corporate, individual and foundation partners that have a vested interest in the education of Louisiana students – particularly those that are at-risk. Your support will help to give the children of Louisiana the opportunities that they deserve.
Lycée has a goal of $35,000 for the 2016-2017 Annual Fund, help us reach 100%. Any donation, large or small, to the Annual Fund strengthens the school’s financial foundation and serves as an investment in the students and staff at Lycée.
You can contribute to the school with a one-time gift or monthly gifts. Monthly giving is the most cost effective way to support Lycée Français. Each month your contribution is charged to your credit card, eliminating the need to write checks or purchase stamps. You can also increase, decrease or suspend your gift at any time by contacting Lycée Français.
One-time donations and monthly donations can be made online or by mail at:
Lycée Français de la Nouvelle-Orléans
Attn: Office of Development
5951 Patton Street
New Orleans, LA 70115

Lycée Français’ spring fundraiser, L’Extravagance, is the biggest fundraiser of the year, it’s an unrestrained evening of food, fun, live entertainment and giving in support of Lycée.
L’Extravagance 2017 was held at Generations Hall on Sunday, March 19, 2017. It featured culinary delights from renowned New Orleans restaurants including like Restaurant Patois, Arabella Casa Di Pasta, Angeline, Taceaux Loceaux, Shank Charcuterie, Toups’ Meatery, Mulate’s Cajun Restaurant and more! We had exciting performances from Meschiya Lake and Tom McDermott at our Patron Party, Harmonouche, Ivan Neville and Friends, Sauveterre, Royal Teeth and Squirrel Nut Zippers during the main event! Great entertainment by hula hoopers, a stilt walker, fire dancers, aerialist Liza Rose, Les ReBelles NOLA and The Merry Antoinettes and an incredible silent auction!
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, restaurants, performers, donors, Lycée community, and volunteers last year was the most successful yet, with a net profit of over $37,000!
The money we raised during this single night allows us to continue to offer amazing opportunities like our “Thinking Outside the Classroom” program where our students participate in multi-week experiences at the Audubon Zoo, Audubon Aquarium, the French Quarter, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art among others, and enable us to prepare for the ambitious expansions we have planned in the years to come.
We are most grateful to our past and current sponsors and donors for their generous support.
