“Lafayette Edge” Annual Campaign about to Close

Professor Robert Kurt, Tiffany Phuong ’16, Kofi Boateng ’16, and Professor Chun Wai Liew work in the lab.There are only five days left to make a gift to the Lafayette Annual Fund for the 2013-14 school year.

The Annual Fund provides support for student scholarships, activities, athletics, and academic projects. Alumni and friends can designate their gift to an area of the college experience that means the most to them.

The College’s goal is to reach a 40 percent alumni participation rate. A contribution of any amount counts toward the participation rate.  To give, call (610) 330-5034 or go to the Development Office’s website.

Alumni participation refers to the percentage of graduates who make a financial contribution to their alma mater. This rate is factored into college rankings – it influences how people view the quality and value of a Lafayette education.  Although a college is more than its “rank,” prospective students and employers look at these rankings as a proxy for quality.

Every gift matters, every year!
