A Foundation of Excellence Bequest
As I find myself closer to the end of my career than the beginning, I often look back and evaluate what experiences in my life were the most enriching. Always, my years at Lawrence are at the top of the list. I have been blessed with much good fortune and it is with great purpose that I feel I should try and help future generations receive the same foundation of excellence that Lawrence gave to me. Lawrence taught me critical thinking that served me extremely well throughout my journey. I was fortunate enough to make lifelong friendships that neither time nor distance have been able to diminish.
Joining Lawrence-Downer Legacy Circle is our way to provide for the school through our estate. To help do this, several years ago Marie and I decided to make a provision for Lawrence in our wills. It is our way to pay it forward. Whether you currently have a will or are just considering getting one started, it is very easy to make a provision for Lawrence. It will only take a few minutes to commit and those few minutes can turn into a lifetime benefit for a future Lawrentian.

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."
