In its development along the lines of Progressive Education—as our underlying principles and practices are described—the school has had the loyal, sympathetic, and active cooperation and support of a highly intelligent group of parents.
Eva Edwards Lovett
The Lovett School could not exist without the support of the Lovett family—from our parents to an extensive network of alumni, grandparents, trustees, parents of alumni, faculty/staff, and other friends and volunteers. Generations of Atlantans have invested in the future of our school, allowing the school to carry out its mission of offering a progressive education grounded in lifelong learning, moral character, and community engagement. At The Lovett School, we have been the beneficiary of such philanthropy for many years. A newly renovated campus, well-equipped classrooms, increased tuition assistance, and more professional development opportunities for faculty and staff are all examples of Lovett philanthropy at work.
Support to Lovett comes in two main ways: gifts of time and gifts of treasure. Volunteering at Lovett can take many forms, such as staffing the concession stand at a football game, shelving books in the library, serving as a room parent, or making calls for True Blue: The Lovett Annual Fund. Whatever your talent or passion, and whatever your available time commitment, The Lovett School appreciates--and depends on--your help.
Like most independent schools, tuition and fees do not cover the total cost of educating your student, and so additional financial support from all members of the Lovett community is key. And, as is the case with other independent schools, Lovett solicits tax- deductible gifts and special financial support from its constituencies in several ways.
The amount each family and individual gives is a personal decision; we just hope that all members of the Lovett community will participate to the best of their ability. Corporations, foundations, and other friends of the school look first at the voluntary financial support provided by those closest to Lovett before deciding the level at which they will support our school. A high participation rate from Lovett’s family is critical. Every gift makes a difference, no matter the amount.
