Fundraising for Light up Lincoln project

Since 2010, Lexington’s K-8 student population has increased by 11%. However, open space dedicated to athletic use has actually diminished in Lexington over the last 10 years. An effective solution is to install permanent lights on Lincoln Field, so that kids can have more time to play sports. Historically, comparable projects were privately funded, such as the baseball lights on Center Field. Lexington residents are now raising $550K to self-fund this project.

The Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) is actively participating in this fundraising. We plan to donate all funds to the Project by end of June, as a symbol of support of the Chinese American residents. All donations are tax deductible. Please click here to donate. You are also welcome to fill up the form with donations already made directly to the project team, if you would like it to be considered as part of the CAAL contribution.

Let’s team up to contribute to our community!
