Mark your calendar for Lawrenceville’s sixth annual Big Red Giving Day on Thursday, November 1, 2018, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. ET.

With your support, we can continue to provide outstanding lifelong experiences for all Lawrentians and fulfill our mission to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
For every 200 gifts or pledges made to The Lawrenceville Fund and The Lawrenceville Parents Fund between 12 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. EST, the Lawrenceville Trustees will give $100,000 to the Fund, up to a total of $500,000 for 1000 donors! Help us reach our goal of 1,000 donors in 24 hours.
All gifts/pledges made on Big Red Giving Day will support The Lawrenceville Fund/Lawrenceville Parents Fund – the School’s annual giving campaign – but you can designate your gift to the arts, athletics, faculty support, financial aid, technology, or another need. You can also make a gift/pledge in honor or memory of a family member, classmate, teacher or coach.
