How We Support the Hero's Journey

Over time, our heroes develop the ability to learn quickly and confidently on their own. They hone the skills they will need to tackle real problems facing our world. They emerge with a strong sense of resilience, empathy, grit, self-efficacy, responsibility, eloquence, and integrity.

Your giving makes the LIA experience possible by:

  • Providing tuition assistance, making an LIA education available to more families
  • Empowering our Guides and Heroes to explore new ideas through enhanced learning materials and opportunities
  • Providing relief to our operating budget, allowing us to acquire innovative equipment and materials
  • Connecting LIA with the community

Ways To Give

Donate Today!

No contribution is TOO small to make a difference! All efforts/amounts are valued. The action of giving and supporting a cause about which you are passionate is not only commendable, but a part of your very own Hero's Journey!


Sponsorship is the simplest way to make an impact on LIA students. When you become a sponsor of LIA, you are helping our heroes to explore, make art, conduct experiments, build connections, take trips, and test limits. As a 501c3 organization, all sponsorship and donations to LIA are tax deductible.
