Why should I give to the Latin Fund? We are proud of our high rate of parent participation, which sends a strong signal of our community's belief in the power of a Latin education. Since every student benefits from the Latin Fund, every family is expected to support this important school-wide effort each year by giving at a level that is meaningful to them before December 31. Last year we reached 84% parent involvement. Parent participation also helps generate additional support from foundations and other external organizations. 2018–2019 Budget Expenses 2018–2019 Budgeted Revenue How much should I give?
