The Blue and Gold Campaign is an initiative that has been in place for over 20 years. This campaign's main goal is to raise funds for the Endowment and the Technology Department. This year the Blue & Gold Campaign will raise money for playground equipment we well.
Build Now, Play Forever!
Safe Surface, Play Equipment and Facility Improvements
OLF is centered in Christ for faith formation, committed to teaching all children, and we encourage strong moral character. We believe children need experiences to learn and grow physically, as well as intellectually. It is through playing that we instill strong values that come from interacting with others, taking turns, and forming relationships through activities. Also, safety for our students at play is of the utmost importance. This is why the safe playground surface was installed on playgrounds over 18 years ago. It is time to replace the safe-surface, repair the current structure on the PreK3, PreK4, and K playground, add more shade, and purchase new playground equipment.
Invest Now, Innovate Forever!
Because of the generosity of so many, we have stayed current and innovative, but technology is always changing, and we need to keep up with it. Please remember that the State of Louisiana provides a tax credit for gifts of technology to educational institutions. The credit is 28.8% of the donation if used for technology. If you itemize you should also be able to take a federal deduction for the donation to the technology fund. By making a $5,000 donation to technology, you could potentially receive a tax savings both federal and state of up to $3,290 depending on your tax bracket. Also, a gift of $1,000 will have tax savings of $658.00. It’s a win-win for all.
When making your donation please be sure specify the area to which you are contributing; this will enable OLF to send receipts for the technology tax break.
