Planning Your Legacy

For more than 165 years, Lawrence University has been committed to providing a strong liberal arts education. Now, more than ever, students are given the opportunity not just to learn, but research, innovate, build relationships, and experience in ways that prepare them for the rapidly evolving global environment that awaits them after graduation.

Lawrence's leadership in providing this type of education depends on the generosity of alumni, parents, and friends. Our donors are of every age, from all walks of life and every place you can imagine. No matter who they are or where they are from, all have one thing in common: a love and passion for Lawrence.

Please consider joining these people by making an impact to Lawrence students of today and the future through a planned gift, including life income gifts and bequests. These types of charitable arrangements let you support us far into the future while also providing tax and other benefits to you.

Olin and Sylvia Jessup Scholarship Fund

"Being able to attend Lawrence has been a wonderful and enriching experience and I want to just say thank you for the Olin and Sylvia Jessup Scholarship I have received. I love the level of involvement that I'm able to attain while attending Lawrence. I've been able to travel with Habitat for Humanity and explore the lives of people very different from myself in classes like The Civic Life Project. The experiences that I have gained from the classroom, my dedicated professors, and my determined and open minded peers are priceless!"

Ansorge Family Scholarship

"Thank you very much for the generous Ansorge Family Scholarship you have provided me with. Your donation toward my education has allowed me the opportunity to attend a prestigious institution like Lawrence that I otherwise would not have had. Your donation has allowed me to continue to pursue my interest in the field of history, an area of study I have always loved. I have no doubt that Lawrence has prepared me to be successful in my future endeavors, and wouldn't trade my experience at this great institution for anything."
