Making a Difference Bequest
I donate to Lawrence and have chosen to include them in my estate plans out of profound gratitude I feel for the education I received there. I think about my undergraduate years often, and I credit Lawrence with helping me to become a person who I hope is making a small difference in the world. While a student at Lawrence, I learned academic discipline and critical thinking, skills I have continued to use through the years.
I donate to Lawrence also because I do not believe that students should be distracted by financial worries. They should be able to concentrate on their academic and personal development. I have joined the Legacy circle by including Lawrence in my estate plan to contribute to the well-being of students. That is what Lawrence is all about.

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."
