- 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!
Now, with the creation of a new building and play space, your support is needed more than ever.
Construction of the New Lemberg Center and Playground
Over the years the demand for Lemberg’s services has grown and we have become an integral part of Brandeis’ educational mission. As a result, a new building was opened on June 10, 2014, which will enable us to almost double the number of children we serve to 70. In addition there will be more opportunities for Brandeis students and availability for community activities at the new center.
Our building is completed, but our playgrounds are not. To complete the new center and playground, we are seeking $125,000 for a playground that will match the innovativeness of the rest of our program.

Potential Features of the New Playground:

- water running downhill over rocks ending into a sand box with easy drainage
- garden boxes where children can learn to grow food
