RESEARCH, TECHNOLOGY, AND MEDICAL EQUIPMENT
The Henry L. Guenther Foundation has been a supporter in our community for years.
As recently as 2017, the Foundation generously invested in the success of
Verbum Dei High School’s student body by providing the funds necessary for 25 new
Chromebooks, charge carts, and updating the technological resources available to our
students. By providing our students with access to the highest quality handheld
technology, the Foundation increased Verbum Dei’s capacity to offer a rigorous,
college-preparatory academic program that prepares students for lifelong success.
Today, our school serves over 340 students, all of which are minority students from
some of the most impoverished communities in Los Angeles County, and many of which
rely on Verbum Dei for their only computer and internet access. Therefore, updating
our school’s available technology was critical in guaranteeing each Verbum Dei
student had equal means to achieve success in a 21st century workforce.
Verbum Dei would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to the Guenther Foundation for
supporting the success of our students and this community.
