Support the Annual Fund by June 30 and make a difference for Lafayette students today!

Our students count on professors for instruction and mentoring, on peers for friendship, and on alumni for support. You play a major role in enabling them to receive a distinctive, world-class Lafayette education. Support students today through a gift to the Annual Fund, financial aid, or another area that’s most meaningful to you.

Why is this important? Because the best institutions have high alumni participation rates, which shows a strong sense of alumni pride and commitment and the power of collective giving. Alumni participation also factors into college rankings and influences how people view the quality and value of a Lafayette education. Help us meet our goal of 35% alumni participation by supporting Lafayette by June 30. Remember, gifts to the Annual Fund range from $5 to $50,000 and are put to immediate use!
