LC Day of Giving: Tuesday, April 3

March 28, 2018

Day of Giving is back, and this year we honor our sesquicentennial with a special match from the Board of Trustees.

Beginning at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, April 3, we have 24 hours to secure 1,867 gifts from faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, and friends from all three schools. When we do, our Board of Trustees will donate an additional $150,000. You can track our progress here.

Staff and faculty are an integral part of the day’s success – last year they made 241 gifts, a great show of support for LC students!
