Statement

“I feel a responsibility to support Sarah Lawrence, because Sarah Lawrence supported me when I needed it most. My financial circumstances changed dramatically after my freshman year, and I thought I would have to leave the College. But my professors, my don and the administrative staff all worked to assemble scholarships and work-study to cover my tuition. I’ll never forget the faith they showed in me, and their commitment to my education. That’s why I give, and hope to do so for a long time to come.”
