The True Blue Annual Fund is an annual giving campaign that directly supports Lovett’s mission of developing students of honor, faith, and wisdom with the character and intellect to thrive in learning and life.
Every aspect of Lovett—our campus, our resources, our facilities, our students, our faculty and staff—is impacted by gifts to True Blue. In fact, the largest percentage of the School’s operating budget is spent on retaining, recruiting, and supporting the highest quality faculty and staff to nurture and lead our students. Gifts to True Blue fund the installation of the latest technological improvements needed on our campus, enhancements to the fine arts program, resources for athletic teams, financial assistance for families, and much more. Broad community participation is critical for the health of the School, and all members of the Lovett community are encouraged to invest in the success and life of Lovett with a gift to True Blue.

True Blue gifts directed towards the programs below let you fund the areas of school life that matter to you most, while supporting the area of greatest need impacts students wherever the need is greatest.
Lovett's 1926 Society plays a critical role in True Blue's success and Lovett's ongoing progress as a leading independent school. Lovett's leadership donors provide more than 80% of True Blue dollars each year. Lovett honors all of our donors, but especially those that support the school at such a generous level. Through their leadership gifts, these donors ensure that Lovett remains fiscally sound and prepared with the vital resources we need each year. The 1926 Society recognizes donors who make annual gifts to the school at the $3,000 level and above.
1926 Society members are recognized in Lovett's annual report, website, and are invited to special gatherings throughout the year. Please note that giving levels can include corporate and matching gifts.
