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 $10,000 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.
