One Mission: 24 hours. 275 Gifts.

Last year’s Giving Day was a huge success! The Lab School Giving Day surpassed all expectations and raised $120,801 for the school in just ONE day!

The Lab School’s Giving Day #LAB275kicks off TUESDAY, MAY 7th, and The Lab School is looking to receive 275 NEW gifts for our school in 24 hours! Alumni, faculty, staff, parents, grandparents, alumni parents and friends of Lab are all invited to participate!

Thanks to gifts provided by Lab School parents LAURA SANDS CRENSHAWTOM & KRISTA DI IACONIDAVE & STELLA SOHIER, an ANONYMOUS JUNIOR HIGH FAMILY, Lab past parent KATHARINE SANDS GUNSALUS and Lab grandparent FRANK SANDS, we will receive $50,000 for The Lab School Fund if we reach 275 gifts by 11:59pm on TUESDAY, MAY 7th.
