Each May, Alumni Weekend attracts almost 1000 alumni, family and friends for walks, talks, Back to Class, picnics, parties, meeting old friends, making new ones and, of course, the Grand March! The 50th Reunion is an opportunity to reconnect with Lawrenceville and serves as an occasion for the class to leave a unique legacy to the School, which drives the 50th Reunion Campaign.
As you approach your 50th Reunion,
we hope you will reflect fondly on your time at Lawrenceville and consider
joining your classmates on campus for Alumni Weekend, which is traditionally
the first weekend in May. We also hope
you will consider making a meaningful financial investment in the future of the
School in celebration of your 50th Reunion.
The Class Reunion Gift
The Class Reunion Gift includes
all new gifts and gift intentions beginning on July 1 of the 46th reunion year
and ending on June 30 of the 50th reunion year, to encourage stretch gifts and
more expansive thinking about gift possibilities. If you choose to make a pledge, you will have
five years to fulfill your commitment – allowing you to maximize the impact of
your gift to Lawrenceville.
Here are some of the ways you
can contribute to your Class Reunion Gift:
The Lawrenceville Fund
The Lawrenceville Fund is
the School’s annual fund, which makes up about 10 percent of the School’s
operating expenses each year. It is
vitally important to the day-to-day operations of the School. Funds are unrestricted, which allows the
School to support the areas of greatest need. These most commonly include financial aid, faculty support, athletics,
and the arts.
Capital gifts to Lawrenceville
provide essential funds to maintain those qualities that define
Lawrenceville. These gifts include
endowed funds for scholarships, campus infrastructure and faculty chairs, as
well as current projects and operational needs.
Planned gifts to Lawrenceville
include bequests, life-income arrangements, and other deferred gifts. Making a planned gift to Lawrenceville also
qualifies you for membership in the John Cleve Green Society. For more information, visit the Planned Giving page.
Gifts of Securities
Gifts of long-term appreciated stock (owned for a year or longer) and mutual funds offer a quick and tax efficient way to make a lasting gift to Lawrenceville. Visit the
