Donate to the VHS Scholar Lab, Second Phase of Library Project

Build the Scholar Lab

The 2016 Gala’s Fund-a-Need introduced a new project to transform Vandegrift High School’s library into a Learning Commons; a 21st Century digital library, where students share space for information technology, collaboration, group study, classroom instruction and more. Gala attendees raised $35,000 that evening for the project. Phase I, the group study space, was completed over the 2016 summer with a generous donation from Chase Flooring.

Completing Phase II of VNEF’s library renovation, the Scholar Lab, will be part of the 2017 Gala Fund-A-Need. For every $10 donated, $7 will be dedicated to the $38,000 necessary to complete the Scholar Lab, including the equipment needed to outfit the space.

The remaining $3 (or 30% of the total raised by the Gala’s Fund-A-Need) will be dedicated to high school and college preparation programs for both our middle and high school students. (For more on the 70/30 Fund-A-Need for 2017, go here.)

Join the Legacy

Donors at $500 received the opportunity for a special designation that will highlight one student’s name and class year. Families who gave $1,000 or more can highlight all siblings. VNEF envisions a striking visual tribute for future and current Vipers and Vandegrift alumni alike. This naming opportunity will continue as we raise $100,000 to complete the Scholar Lab.
