Donor Brick Campaign -- Leave Your Mark at the Center!

Brick inscriptions are a perfect way to pay tribute to someone important, commemorate your school year or honor a special teacher or parent. Bricks are also ideal graduation and birthday gifts and provide a meaningful way to memorialize a friend or relative. Proceeds of the brick campaign directly benefit the Gateway Project, which is the Center's first capital initiative.
