The Falcon Fund

This campaign runs from July 1st to June 30th. Please donate here


It its essential that a Lial education be as affordable as possible. We continue to charge about $2,000 below the actual cost of educating. Your gift to the Falcon Fund truly makes a difference. The Falcon Fund Campaign provides an opportunity for benefactors of Lial to demonstrate their financial support of the programs happening right here. The Falcon Fund is the total of all unrestricted gifts given during the school year. At Lial, 90% of the gifts given through the general appeals are designated by the donor to the operations of the school. This year’s Falcon Fund goal is $50,000. Please contact Sr. Pat McClain, Principal, or Jackie Flom, Development Director, at 419-877-5167.



Lial’s premier fund-raiser provides general operation funds as well as designated funds for a specific project. The BIG EVENT has helped renovate bathrooms, repair the roof, purchase technology, install a playground, add air conditioning, update safety features, and purchase new carpeting. Since its’ beginning in 2005, this event has raised over $500,000! If you have auction items or experiences, you would be willing to donate; please contact Jackie Flom at Event sponsorship opportunities are also available.
