Wow! Lawrentians have once again demonstrated their capacity to rise to – and surpass – any challenge. Between 12:00 midnight and 11:59 p.m. on November 5, our third annual Big Red Giving Day, Lawrenceville alumni, parents and friends made 1,207 gifts and pledges totaling $1,113,193, a new one-day record for support of The Lawrenceville Fund/Parents Fund. Lawrentians easily surpassed a generous Trustee Challenge, which promised $50,000 for each 200 gifts or pledges, up to $200,000 for 800 gifts, with a bonus of an additional $100,000 if the number of gifts exceeded 1,000. This brought the total dollar amount for the day to a whopping $1,413,193.
