Parents Fund

St. Lawrence University continues to make significant advances in higher education while distinguishing itself as a high-quality liberal arts college. The Parents Fund plays an important role in this by providing a flexible source of income that is used to sustain and enhance the most strategically important projects, programs, and initiatives on a day-to-day basis.

A message from Trip '80 and Allyson Samson P'16

Dear Parents,

Thank you for joining us in supporting St. Lawrence University. As you are aware, parents are a very important part of the St. Lawrence community. Last year, annual fund gifts from parents of current students and parents of alumni totaled $577,669. Total gifts from parents (including capital and endowment gifts) for fiscal year 2013 were $1,219,441. Thank you all for your generous support!

In addition to financial contributions, St. Lawrence parents are also extremely generous with their time and support of current students and alumni. Parents have provided internships and shadowing opportunities, served as career advisors, and help immensely in "word of mouth" advertising for St. Lawrence. We greatly appreciate your help in all of these areas.

We have been fortunate to be able to have an intern from St. Lawrence with us for the New York City semester program now for several years. These young people are interested and engaged in learning about the world. We encourage parents to get involved with SLU in any way they can. 

As parents of a son in the class of 2016, we are so impressed with what is happening at St. Lawrence. The programs, faculty and support that we see really are phenomenal and we want to be a part of making sure that this continues and improves, not just for our son, but for future students. Please consider joining us in supporting the Parents Fund and make your pledge or gift today. 

Many thanks to all of the parents for their generous support of St Lawrence!
