Building Lives That Go Beyond
Your money matters! That is why for over 80 years, this culture of faith and generosity has laid a foundation that touches every student today. We steward your gifts by investing where it matters most – in our people, programs, and our places. When you give to Ben Lippen School, you are partnering with us in building lives that go beyond.
We are built on the prayers and gifts of supporters who believe in the importance of educating students with a Biblical worldview. As a Christ-centered, college preparatory school with a global reach, we rely on the generosity of parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends to fulfill our mission. Whether giving through the Falcon Fund, to a capital need, or including Ben Lippen in your estate plans, your gift has a vital impact on our school and the families we serve.
