Why Give?

Since its founding in 1964, La Reina has relied on the financial generosity of others-- the Sisters of Notre Dame, families and friends to develop and expand the school’s exemplary academic, performing arts, athletic and other programs.

As a private Catholic school, La Reina receives no support from the Archdiocese and uses a financial model that relies upon charitable contributions to fund the unique opportunities that help create our exceptional learning community.


Ways to Give

There are many ways for you to make a difference in the lives of our students! Charitable donations of all types and sizes ensure La Reina will continue to set our students on the path to becoming the capable, compassionate and confident leaders our world needs.


Your contribution may be designated to support any specific program area that you wish.


Below are just a few ideas about how you might contribute to La Reina and in turn, help each and every student connect to her God-given potential. If you have questions or would welcome additional information please contact our Director of Advancement, Karen Starleaf, at kstarleaf@lareina.com, or by phone at 805-495-6494, extension 1026. Thank you. 



The La Reina Fund

The La Reina Fund

It is the collective generosity of the La Reina community - including parents, faculty, alumnae, and friends – that enables our school to achieve its mission of providing a nurturing environment of educational excellence, where students foster their relationship with God, grow intellectually, develop their individual gifts, and become confident, capable young women.

Every year, we ask all of our families and friends to support our school first with a contribution to the La Reina Fund.

As with all independent schools, La Reina relies on annual giving to help fund the programs and activities that make us an exceptional learning community. Every member of the La Reina family – current parents, trustees, alumnae, parents of alumnae, grandparents, and other friends – has the opportunity to support the La Reina Fund! 

The La Reina Fund touches the life of every student this year.

Contributions to the La Reina Fund have an immediate and direct benefit to all students by equipping our educational home with the tools our girls need to learn, grow and thrive.

All gifts to the La Reina Fund 2017-18 initiative will be gratefully accepted throughout the academic year.

Thank you for affirming your belief in La Reina and its mission by investing in our students!
