Always a Special Place Bequest
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.
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.

Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy
Roher Auld Scholarship
"Many students take for granted what a university has to offer. However, I am thankful every single day for the opportunity to attend this prestigious school. At Lawrence, you have the ability to engage in Socratic debates about the world we live in at dinner, play recreational or NCAA sports, and talk one on one with brilliant professors. At Lawrence, you don't just 'learn' a subject, you are immersed in it. You dive into the liberal arts and these professors show you the beauty in it all, and how everything is tied together. I am a Biochemistry major with a soft spot for rocket science, philosophy, and evolution. Lawrence is my dream school, and it would have never been possible without the Dr. Irving Auld and Dorothy Roher Auld Scholarship. I am forever grateful for their generosity."
