Giving to Lab
Lab Innovation Fund
Invest in Innovation! Donate Today>>
The Lab Innovation Fund is Charlotte Lab School’s Annual Giving Campaign. Money raised each year will help fund many of the programs and activities that make our school special and allow us to create a truly innovative learning environment. We depend on our families, friends, and community for their support to supplement our operating budget so that we can accomplish our ambitious goals.
Gifts to this fund are unrestricted and will be invested according to school priorities. In this fiscal year, board and staff have identified the following areas for additional support: technology, library, staff development & retention, facility, and after school programming. You can learn more about our plans here. >>
Thanks to the amazing generosity of Lab families, friends, board members, foundations, and corporations, we raised $226,280 for our annual fund, plus a $250,000 grant from NewSchools Venture Fund.
Although we are a new school, we have a history of success raising money! We have raised more than $760,000 from individual donors and a total of $1.5 million from all sources in less than two years and are honored that more than 75% of our families have supported the school by making a donation. This money has been used to get our building ready, build our amazing playground, attract top-notch staff, enhance our innovative curriculum, advance our personalized learning programs, and undertake many other initiatives that enhance your child’s education.
Please consider making a gift of any size to the Lab Innovation Fund today! Your annual gift to Charlotte Lab School will help support the needs of all of our students and help ensure that we can continue to provide a unique approach to teaching and learning for your children.
