Philanthropy at Lamplighter

The Lamplighter School has been the beneficiary of strong philanthropic support since its inception in 1953. During those earliest days, the school’s founders, Natalie Murray and Sandy Swain partnered with city leaders and Texas Instruments founder, Eric Jonnson, to create an independent school that filled a niche in Dallas providing exceptional education for the youngest learners. 

Thanks to the steadfast commitment of past and current donors, Lamplighter continues the tradition of providing a serious education wrapped in the wonder of childhood.

Your support helps ensure that Lamplighter students receive an educational foundation that inspires the love of learning for a lifetime.

The Lamplighter Mission Statement

Dedicated to igniting the potential of each child, Lamplighter engages children in the joy of learning through intellectual discovery in a creative, inclusive, and collaborative environment.
