The Parents Fund had a record breaking year during the 2015-2016 campaign, raising $1,936,759 in unrestricted gifts from 685 current parents, past parents and grandparents, increasing our dollars and gifts from last year.
Thanks to the generosity from these families, the School was able to strengthen its core programs, meet unexpected needs and embrace new opportunities while maintaining important Lawrenceville traditions: Harkness teaching and the House system.
The Lawrenceville Parents Fund (TLPF) regularly accounts for approximately one-quarter of the money raised by The Lawrenceville Fund (TLF) and is charged with raising unrestricted gifts from current parents, parents of alumni and grandparents. The Parents Fund, chaired by Erin Enright P'13 '16 '18, Danielle Bentsen Sieler P'17 '20 and John Wellemeyer '55 P'18, is consistently successful thanks to its many dedicated volunteers.
Goals for 2016-2017
- $2.0 million raised from current parents, parents of alumni and grandparents
- 670 gifts from current parents, parents of alumni and grandparents
Please join your fellow Lawrenceville parents in making a gift to the Parents Fund. Your gift
assists the School by producing vital support for the current operation of the
School. That support provides Lawrenceville with the resources necessary to
fund critical attributes – scholarship support, a low student/faculty ratio,
exceptional student activities, and first-rate facilities – as well as to
sustain important Lawrenceville traditions, such as Harkness teaching and the
residential House system.
Pledges are welcome, but must be honored by June 30, 2017 when the Parents Fund fiscal year ends. Remember that your gift can be doubled if you or your spouse is
associated with a company or foundation that matches gifts to secondary
