Leadership Giving

Leadership donors empower the transformative experience of a Latin education for every Latin learner.

Fidelitas Society: Honoring Leadership Giving

The Fidelitas Society recognizes Latin’s philanthropic leaders who make annual gifts of $5,000 or more.

The Latin noun “Fidelitas” on the school crest translates as “active faithfulness, trust, or fidelity.”

As a Fidelitas Society member, you keep Latin strong with your faithful generosity and trust in our school's mission. Whether in support of the Latin Fund, event underwriting, capital efforts, or endowment, your generosity and leadership across multiple school initiatives demonstrates an active trust in the school’s passionate community of families, educators, and students.


How to Participate

In addition to the two annual efforts listed below, there are many other ways to support Latin’s strategic priorities, including gifts for capital projects and specific areas of our program that are particularly meaningful to your family.

Latin Fund: Experience the Impact of Giving
Latin Fund

We ask every Latin family to contribute to the Latin Fund, our primary giving campaign, which supports all the people and programs that make the Latin experience so powerful.

Annual Event

Many families also support Latin’s annual fundraising event, which regularly funds more than one quarter of the more than $4 million Latin awards annually in need-based financial aid. This year’s event, Romans, Raise & Revel, will be on March 2, 2023. Individual and corporate sponsors are crucial to the success of the event. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities and benefits, please contact Jennifer Funchess at jfunchess@sampuanim.com or 312.582.6046.

Endowment contributions are the most important investment in continuing Latin’s legacy of excellence. The steady income provided by endowment allows Latin to continually provide support that flows to students and families, teachers and staff. In growing endowment, Latin aims to secure its place as a top institution in perpetuity.

Your investment at the leadership level strengthens the rigorous and innovative educational program that has inspired generations of students at Latin to pursue their passions and lead lives of purpose and excellence. Naming Opportunities begin at $100,000.
