One Day. One Goal. One Lawrenceville. #BigRedGivingDay is November 1!
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. This one-day, online-based fundraising event is a way to show your Big Red pride and support Lawrenceville academics, faculty, athletics, arts, financial aid and more. 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.
Create your own buzz and help spread the word about Big Red Giving Day by using the hashtag #BigRedGivingDay on Facebook and Twitter. We will be sharing progress reports throughout the day on our website, via email, and through social media. Don’t be left out! Mark your calendar today for November 1 and be part of this special opportunity to achieve an outstanding result for Lawrenceville.
Prize-winning poet and Lawrenceville alumnus Dennis Nurkse ’66 returned to campus recently as the 2018-19 Merrill Poet. During his residency on campus, Nurkse was a guest lecturer in English classes, led a poetry master class with students and alumni, and read from his works during an event in the Edith Memorial Chapel.
The sixth annual Celebration of Black Lawrentians, co-sponsored by the Lawrenceville Black Alumni Association (LBAA) and the student-run Alliance of Black Cultures (ABC), offered an inspiring view into the talents and aspirations of the School’s Black students and an insightful window into the Lawrenceville Black experience.
Through House and Harkness, Lawrenceville challenges a diverse community of promising young people to lead lives of learning, integrity, and high purpose. Our mission is to inspire the best in each to seek the best for all.
