Report from Development
Lawrence's donors continue to demonstrate their generosity in impressive fashion. Lawrence had its third-best fundraising year, with gift income from private sources totaling $27.7 million. Lawrence Fund support set a new all-time record, and the college welcomed an increase in its number of donors. We continue to focus on the alumni participation rate, which had a slight decline this year.
A crucial part of our success in raising money for our endowment over the past two years was the generosity of the anonymous donor who pledged $30 million to match gifts for student scholarship support in our Full Speed to Full Need campaign.
Please join us Tuesday, Nov. 15 for our third annual Giving Day, featuring a live, 12-hour online show celebrating all things Lawrence. All gifts will be matched to support the Lawrence Fund.
Vice President for Alumni and Development
