Lab employees pledged a record $325,246 — up almost 7 percent over last year — and other donors brought total donations to $342,849. Los Alamos National Security, LLC matched employee giving with $250,000. “Our employees know first-hand that education can unlock opportunity for talented students who hold the promise to be future leaders in government, industry or the non-profit sector,” Mousseau, said. The number of LANL donors also increased by 5 percent over 2014. Funds raised this year will be used by the LANL Foundation to award scholarships to students in seven Northern New Mexico counties in 2015.
