Lafayette Fundraising



The Auction (live + silent) is a major fundraising event at Lafayette. Historically held in the Spring, it is a wonderful way for the parents/guardians to build community while supporting our students. Hundreds of items are procured and donated from families and local businesses to help raise funds. Students participate by creating class art projects for Raise the Paddle.


The Walk-a-Thon is a major fundraising events at Lafayette. Historically held in the Fall, it is a great way for our students to take part in the fundraising process for the programs they utilize everyday at school. Many of our local businesses give via sponsorship.

Our community is everything to us. We would like to recognize the organizations in our community that have financially supported Lafayette year after year. See the organizations that are Lafayette Sponsors and be sure to visit and say “thank you” when you shop, dine, or are out and about in West Seattle and beyond.
