Minds Matter Draws to a Close

Minds Matter An Overwhelming Success!

The Carlisle Education Foundation is pleased to announce that we have completed our Minds Matter campaign and surpassed our goal. Through the generosity of the entire Carlisle community, Minds Matter has raised $152,000 to help outfit the new Science & Technology Lab and the Multi-Purpose Room as part of the new school building project. We would like to thank our generous donors, company matching programs, our distinguished challenge grant creators as well as the Cabot Corporation for their substantive support of this initiative. CEF would also like to thank the many volunteers who have helped in a variety of ways throughout the year to make this campaign an overwhelming success. Members of the CEF Board of Directors announced the results of the campaign at the Carlisle School Committee meeting on June 6 to an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response.

Plans for tour of the new spaces once completed will be announced at a later date.
