Outdoor Lab Foundation Presents Jeffco Public Schools with $916,910.58; Ensuring the Outdoor Lab Legacy Continutes

Seven years ago, Outdoor Lab was nearly lost due to budget cuts in education. The Foundation was intent on saving the program. For the past several years, The Outdoor Lab Foundation has forged meaningful and impactful relationships within our community to effectively sustain, support and grow the program. 

On September 6th, the Outdoor Lab Foundation presented a check to Superintendent Dr. Jason Glass and Jeffco Public Schools for $916,910.58, representing Outdoor Lab support the Foundation provided during the 2017-2018 school year. The Foundation’s efforts and continued community support ensure that each year, every sixth-grade student in Jefferson County, regardless of economic status or physical ability, are gifted their opportunity to attend Outdoor Lab.
