Always a Special Place Bequest and IRA Charitable Rollover
For us, Lawrence will always be a special place. We met there and made lifelong friends. The liberal education we received has provided a solid foundation for our careers and personal lives, sparking professional and personal interests we pursue to this day. This is why we joined the Lawrence-Downer Legacy Circle.
We also want to support Lawrence during our lifetime. Use of the required minimum distribution from a tax-deferred retirement account is a particularly effective way to support Lawrence. Our contributions from these funds are not taxed, so we can contribute the full amount to Lawrence, not just the amount after taxes.

Clare Scherf Sweetman Scholarship
"The thing I admire most about Lawrence is the diverse community. You are accepted and treated fairly no matter where you are from. Lawrence does not only teach you what you need to know it also helps you to be independent and prepare you to be successful for the future. I have always wanted to be in this prestigious and diverse university. I will forever be grateful to the Clare Scherf Sweetman Scholarship for helping me reach my dream."
