Serving all of Louisiana

Support Us

As a public charter school, we rely on the support of community members and friends to ensure that we can continue to grow and offer the exceptional programs that enrich our students’ education.

There are several ways you can show your support to Lycée. From volunteering to making a gift, every contribution makes an impact. Whether it’s a monthly pledge to the Annual Fund or a gift contribution, we are grateful for your support.

To learn more or for questions, contact our Director of Development Sofia Pena-Uijttenboogaard at or 504.620.5500 ext. 1708.

*Lycée Français is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, EIN: 80-0502031

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, The New Orleans Jazz Museum, Chevron’s FabLab at Delgado Community College, 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.

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. Stay tuned for the new goal for the 2018-2019 school year!

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

If you work for a company with a matching gift program, you can participate and significantly increase the total value of your gift to Lycée Français.
