This blog post is written about by Landon’s school nurse, Julie Acebal, on the growing epidemic of vaping and how parents can communicate with their children about the health effects of electronic cigarettes.
The Landon Fund
At Landon, our mission guides us in all we do.
We prepare talented boys for productive lives as accomplished, responsible and caring men. The Landon Fund is our annual giving program that allows members of our community to make gifts to the school in support of this mission.
Why give? Each year, the Landon Fund raises money that impacts the life of all students. The Landon Fund is an essential part of school’s annual operating budget, filling the gap not covered by tuition and fees.
Whether it is academics or the arts, athletics or faculty development, financial aid or campus and facilities, we have seven different designations you may choose to support. The "Area of Greatest Need" allows us the flexibility to invest in our most urgent priorities.
The Headmaster's Council honors those donors, foundations and corporations who provide significant leadership contributions to Landon School. Landon Fund gifts totaling $2,500 or more per fiscal year are considered leadership level gifts ($1,000 for young alumni). Donors receive exclusive recognition in our Annual Report and are honored at the Headmasters Council reception each year.
Your gift to the Landon Fund will help us enhance, enrich and improve the student experience. For more information or questions, please contact Assistant Director of Annual Giving Victoria Kidd at 301-320-1123 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
