Supporting the Transformational Experience Retirement Assets and Life Insurance Beneficiaries
Bill Hochkammer '66
My Lawrence education is one of my most important life experiences. It prepared me well for law school and for a rewarding professional and personal life. I am forever thankful for the opportunity to attend Lawrence, for the education I received and the friends I made. I was able to attend Lawrence only because most of my costs were funded by an anonymous donor. Because I want to make the same opportunity available to others, I funded an endowed scholarship and add to the fund annually. Providing this scholarship support is my most important philanthropic goal.
I also recognize how important it is that Lawrence receives expendable funds that can be used for whatever endeavors are most important to it at the time. This support is critical to carrying out Lawrence's strategic initiatives and balancing its annual budget. Lawrence continues to make great strides in improving the opportunities for its students and expendable funds produce the most immediate impact. That is why I make an annual unrestricted contribution to the Lawrence Fund. Because I would like my support of Lawrence through unrestricted contributions to extend beyond my lifetime, I joined the Legacy Circle and named Lawrence as the beneficiary of some of my retirement and life insurance benefits.
I encourage all of us who love Lawrence to make a deferred gift to extend our financial support of Lawrence beyond our lifetimes, so future generations of students can benefit from the transformational experience which Lawrence provides.

"I am currently a senior double majoring in biochemistry and economics and minoring in Innovation & Entrepreneurship. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate the Theodore Diamandopoulos Memorial Scholarship, without it, my Lawrence experience would not be possible. I have enjoyed being a mentor in the CORE freshman mentorship program, playing and working for the Women's Basketball team, competing in Model United Nations, interning as a lab assistant at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, hosting a pilot STEM program for young unaccompanied refugees in Greece, and volunteering through KidsGive during a field trip to Sierra Leone. Thank you so much for supporting me in doing the things I dream to do."
