Playground Fundraising

So Far       

  • So far, our alumni have collectively donated $35,000!
  • The wonderful Firefly Scientists' Foundation has given $50,000 and pledged $50,000 more!
  • The achievement of $135,000 exceeded our original goal, but to reach the $200,000 needed, we still have a lot to go!
  • To help out, see the links above.                                                                            

Support Lemberg

Our playground construction will start the summer of 2015 and we are really excited about the adventures ahead. There will be two playgrounds... one near our main entrance designed for infants and toddlers and the other up on our second level for preschoolers. The plan is for an outdoor classroom/natural playspace with rocks to climb and water to divert on its journey downhill. The construction of a climber and playstructure with poured rubber surface is needed for our toddlers and to ensure physical accessibility for all. We need your gift to help make this a reality.

Our alumni have really come through by collectively donating $35,000. The wonderful Firefly Scientists' Foundation has given $50,000 and pledged to give $50,000 more to see us build a community garden and playgrounds accessible for all. The achievement of raising $135,000 exceeded our original goal, but to reach the $200,000 needed we still have a lot to go. Will you help us? $250 buys a brick with your name, $1,000 buys a raised garden bed, or trees, or terraced flower beds, $2,500 a water-play space, $10,000 swings, and $50,000 a playstructure with climber, house and slide. Thank you for donating $10, $25, $50, $100, or any amount.
