Every gift to The Lawrenceville Fund from alumni, parents and friends, whatever its size, makes a valuable and immediate difference to the School.


The Lawrenceville Fund is Lawrenceville’s annual giving campaign. The Fund is a vital part of the School’s finances. Tuition alone accounts for only about 60 percent of the cost of a Lawrenceville education. Income from Lawrenceville’s endowment and The Lawrenceville Fund makes up the difference. Each year, alumni, parents and friends make unrestricted gifts that provide about 10 percent of the School’s operating budget.

    While we are grateful for gifts of any size, leadership gifts are critical to the success of The Lawrenceville Fund and the Parents Fund each year. Membership in the Red & Black Leadership Society begins at $2,500, and entitles you to a special thank you from the School and an invitation to a reception for leadership donors (in the fall for parents during Parents Weekend and for alumni in the spring during Alumni Weekend).

    Head Master Society:$100,000+
