One Mission: 24 hours. 200 Gifts.

Thanks to you, our Lab School Community, we not only made our original goal of 200 gifts yesterday, but we surpassed our two additional goals of 100 gifts each! All in all, The Lab School received 494 gifts and unlocked $55,000 for the school! Your gifts, combined with the challenges gifts raised $118,145 for the school in just ONE day!
Thank you to all who gave and made our first Giving Day such a success!
A special thank you to our challenge donors: Lab parents, Jon Riberas & Belen Orjales, Liam & Caroline Coakley, The Wilcox Family and Katharine Sands Gunsalus, Lab grandparents, Menlo & Kathryn Smith and Frank Sands, the Howard & Geraldine Polinger Family Foundation and an anonymous donor.
This is a phenomenal dream come true for the school.
Please enjoy this video as a thank you from The Lab School faculty/staff and students!
