Help the Center School meet our ambitious goal of $50,000 during this amazing 24-hour day of giving. 

A group of veteran Center School teachers have come together to offer our first match of the day of $2,000! 

"We are a group of veteran Center School teachers who have come together to create a match for Giving Tuesday. Every day, we come to school and teach, witness and love these astonishing children. And every day we see the work our colleagues do, reaching each child as an individual while holding the community as a whole in their collective arms. We are so touched by this dedication, that we wanted to issue a challenge match to help spread the message of Center School's success----not only with the hopeful, bright kids we see every day, but also the beautiful, intelligent alumni we are still in touch with, who are seriously, thoughtfully and joyfully making the world a better place. Please join us in giving! Thank you. "

Donations made between now and May 1st count towards the first match. Prizes abound on Valley Gives Day!
