    Planned Gifts
    Planned giving presents an opportunity for donors to structure a gift that not only provides for the future of Orange Lutheran but also achieves a variety of financial objectives. Deferred gifts include bequests, life insurance, trusts, and gifts of stock or real estate. There are numerous tax advantages to planned gifts. Please contact the Advancement Office for additional information on planned gifts to Lutheran High School.

    Gifts of long-term appreciated securities provide donors with a double tax benefit. Under most circumstances, donors can deduct the full market value and avoid capital gains tax on the appreciation. Please contact the Advancement Office to learn more about ways in which you can use appreciated stocks to make a gift. We suggest consulting with a professional advisor before making such a gift.

    Most gifts to Orange Lutheran High School are tax-deductible. However, the true benefit of your generosity is the long term gift you are providing for young adults as they grow and develop into strong Christian leaders. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to Orange Lutheran High School.


  • Q: What are the opportunities for support?


    Limitless opportunities exist for supporting Orange Lutheran High School. We invite you as families, alumni, foundations, and corporations to equip our students with the tools necessary to achieve academic, athletic and artistic excellence through your gifts.

    Annual Fund
    Tuition and contributions from association congregations do not cover the full cost of excellence in an Orange Lutheran education. All of the essential elements that combine to produce well rounded Christian men and women of character far exceed the revenue from tuition income. Annual fund contributions help Orange Lutheran High School bridge the gap to make sure our students have the resources they need to maximize their God-given gifts.

    Of all gifts, financial aid can truly make the difference in the life of one of our students. Gifts of this kind allow students who may not otherwise have the opportunity to receive a Christian education in an exceptional academic and social environment.

    Student Programs
    Orange Lutheran High School works to look beyond just the basic needs of its student body. Innovative educational programs and unique co-curricular activities provide resources and opportunities for our students to excel both inside and outside the traditional classroom. Donors have the opportunity to designate their gifts to the program of their choice. Gifts to these programs support our expanding curriculum, Lancer Athletics, the Arts and Nechita Center performances, the DSPS Program, and other student-focused organizations and initiatives.

    Unrestricted Gifts
    To support Orange Lutheran's mission, unrestricted gifts may be applied to improvements in technology, facility enhancements, and infrastructure development. These compose the framework on which we nurture the spiritual, intellectual, physical and social growth of our students.

    Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to donate your time, such as at our very own Orange Lutheran Thrift Shop, to our newest event Lancer Ladies Brunch, or at our largest event of the year, the Power of the Dream Gala!

The Journey

Orange Lutheran exists because of vision. The school was conceived in 1959 by a group of Christian men and women who met regularly with the purpose of founding a Lutheran high school in Orange County. With no campus, no buildings, and no staff, the school was only a vision of its founders. But at the end of each meeting, one of those founders would pass around his hat, and all would offer whatever change was in their pockets.

Orange Lutheran has come a long way since the time of the founder's hat, but your support is still needed to match the school's resources with its ever-expanding vision. Every gift continues the tradition established by our founders and makes a meaningful contribution to enriching our students' lives.

Gifts to Orange Lutheran translate into:

  • Increased personal attention for students
  • Values- and character-enriching experiences
  • Innovative and state of the art resources
  • Greater credibility behind student credentials
  • One of a kind instruction in academics, arts, and athletics
