It is essential that we bolster the endowment for athletics. Simply put, a larger endowment gives the college greater security and flexibility, and it ensures that our traditional strength—student athletes—will endure and thrive across all of our 21 varsity sports.

A number of opportunities exist for establishing named endowed funds as a means of recognizing a donor’s generosity to Lawrence. Minimum thresholds for named endowed funds are listed below.

Oftentimes donors consider endowment gifts as part of their legacy giving. Please consider making an impact to Lawrence student-athletes of the future through a planned gift, including life income gifts and bequests. These types of charitable arrangements let you support Lawrence student-athletes far into the future while also providing tax and other benefits to you.
