Laguna Blanca School Receives $25,000 Matching Gift Challenge

Donations from the alumni community made by Saturday will be matched dollar for dollar

In an effort to expand the Laguna Blanca School alumni giving community, an anonymous local philanthropist gifted the school $25,000 to create an alumni community matching gift challenge.

All gifts made by any member of the alumni community — alumni parents, grandparents, grad or non-grad — by this Saturday, June 30, will be matched dollar for dollar up to $25,000.

In the above video, Laguna Blanca alumni donor Dick Welch (class of 1957) reflects on the summer of 1955, when he spent his vacation giving back to Laguna by pounding nails and raising the walls of the school’s library. He learned something about what it takes to build a community; his giving is just one of the many inspiring stories in Laguna’s nearly 80-year history.

All gifts are tax deductible and will benefit current Laguna students who are now shaping the stories that they’ll carry with them for a lifetime.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
