The Lawrence Fund is a steady beacon that shines its light on every corner of campus. Contributions to the Lawrence Fund support our students, faculty, and facilities. Gifts have an immediate impact on scholarships, Conservatory, athletics, Björklunden, the library, and beyond. The Lawrence Fund does more than just keep the lights on, it lights the way for a transformative educational experience for every Lawrentian.

“From the generosity of donors, I was able to come to the US and pursue my dream of becoming a neurosurgeon. Lawrence has provided me with a lot of opportunities that have brought me a step closer to reaching my career goal. I am highly grateful for the support and care of the Lawrence community. You are allowing me to have a better future. Thank you!”

Gifts to the Lawrence Fund Supports

Academic Excellence

Strengthen the academic heart of the university by providing resources that increase our students’ success with technology enhancements, lab supplies, world-class faculty, hands-on learning programs, library resources and more.


Impact the majority of students’ ability to attend Lawrence—98% of students receive financial aid. The Lawrence Fund helps bridge the gap between what students pay in tuition and the actual cost of operating the college. Without the Lawrence Fund and endowment earnings, each student’s tuition would increase by more than $11,000 per year. Your support allows us to attract and retain talented students from socioeconomically diverse backgrounds.

Student Experience

Support the full Lawrence experience by enhancing the learning environment and supporting resources both inside and outside of the classroom, from study abroad to internships, varsity athletics to research programs and even student retreats at Björklunden.

Caring for Campus

Keep Lawrence’s campus beautiful, vibrant and safe.  Helping us to transform the campus and maintain our historic roots creates a space for our students to succeed.
