Give the gift of a Laurence education!
As alumni, we all benefitted from the amazing educational opportunities we received at Laurence provided. But we learned more than academic lessons. We learned study skills, public speaking, painting, and music. We gained confidence and grew wings by spending our days amongst caring and dedicated teachers. Most importantly, we learned to be honest, kind, and empathetic and to give back to our communities. From those of us who graduated in the 1980s and 1990s to those of us who graduated just last year, we all remember bringing food donations for the Interfaith Food Pantry every Friday.
The Jacobson Legacy Scholarship Fund was set up to offer Laurence alumni the opportunity to give back by giving the gift of a Laurence education! What better way to honor our school, which gave us an incredible foundation for success!
Laurence School puts a high value on diversity and inclusiveness. We believe that by drawing from a more varied population, socially, culturally, and economically, our entire community benefits today and will benefit for generations to come.
Inspired by both our Founders, Marvin and Lynn Jacobson, and by our alumni who took their Laurence educations and went forth into secondary schools and beyond with great success, we started this fund with a goal of ensuring support for financial aid to generations to come.
Your gifts to the Jacobson Legacy Scholarship Fund make a Laurence education possible for a wider range of families.
