Falcon Fund in Five

Thank you for supporting the Falcon Fund!

The Falcon Fund in Five is a 5-day parent drive in the fall inviting parents to show their support for Ben Lippen. Our goal is always participation as the support of those closest to the school speaks volumes as we reach out to other donors, organizations, and grants. 

Every gift matters, no matter the amount. Every year, we see small gifts come together for a big impact.  

The Falcon Fund is a vital part of our annual operating budget and your gifts touch every aspect of a student’s experience, providing what most likely influenced your choice of a Ben Lippen education. Your gifts allow us to support enhancements in technology, improve campus security, invest in transportation, expand academic programs, and continue to grow our spiritual life, arts, and athletics programs. 

The Falcon Fun in Five is an exciting week on campus with fun, friendly class and division competitions to make participating fun, car line excitement, and even a visit from Talon, our school mascot.

It’s never too late to support the Falcon Fund if you missed this 2023-24 parent drive. You can make an immediate or recurring donation or a pledge conveniently and securely online. Pledges are due before June 30, 2024.
