The Fund for Sarah Lawrence




Ava McDonald

Alumni. Parents. Friends.

The Fund for Sarah Lawrence bridges the gap between tuition revenue and the cost of maintaining the highest standards of educational excellence. Every day your gifts to the Fund for Sarah Lawrence provide much-needed, immediate support of our talented students, unrivaled faculty, and Sarah Lawrence’s one-of-a-kind education. We have always used this fund as a way of providing for the most pressing needs of the College. Today, your support is more critical than ever. Gifts to the Fund for Sarah Lawrence will help see students, faculty, staff, and the College itself through these unprecedented times.

Your Generosity Supports...


Tremendous potential doesn’t necessarily equate with significant financial resources—a principle illustrated by the fact that the majority of Sarah Lawrence students now receive some form of financial aid.

The Fund for Sarah Lawrence ensures that the College’s vigorous intellectual dialogue—a hallmark of the Sarah Lawrence experience—continues to be enriched by students from across the socioeconomic spectrum.

Support the eclectic, vibrant student population


No other major undergraduate college in the US offers Sarah Lawrence’s outstanding level of one-to-one interaction between students and faculty.

It’s why so many Sarah Lawrence alums experience great success after graduation, and why the College has never compromised—and never will compromise—on its commitment to faculty.

Your support of The Fund for Sarah Lawrence allows the College to attract and retain the dedicated faculty that is a cornerstone of the Sarah Lawrence experience.

The Academic Experience

Sarah Lawrence College students engage deeply in studies that examine different points of view; they combine passion and rigor to develop and express their unique ideas.

This spirited academic dialogue is unique in the landscape of American higher education. The College relies on funds to continue to pilot new programs, add new areas of study, bring inspirational guests to campus, and continue to forge new interdisciplinary ground.

Support academic success that has the power to change the world


The technological needs of both students and faculty evolve with great rapidity. An investment in the College’s infrastructure and equipment is also an investment in its unique pedagogy.

By increasing access to and use of technology on campus, the College enhances the faculty’s ability to guide and mentor, and the students’ ability to engage in the constant innovation and intellectual inquiry that is central to a Sarah Lawrence education.

Support the advantage technology brings to faculty & students

The Campus

The Sarah Lawrence campus supports and reflects the intellectual, social, and personal interests and needs of its vibrant community.

Stimulating seminars, intimate poetry readings, lively discussions—they all occur on a campus that is a principle element of Sarah Lawrence. A gift in support of the campus helps preserve the places where important moments and experiences of a Sarah Lawrence education happen.
