An Update from Parent Programs
Greetings from Parent Programs at Sarah Lawrence!
We are thrilled to begin another academic year at Sarah Lawrence College and hope that everyone had a wonderful summer. Welcome to our newest members of the community and a welcome back to all our parents. 2014 was a great year for the College and for Parent Programs. We are pleased to report that last fiscal year parents contributed well over half a million dollars to the 2014 Parents Fund. Together with alumni, The Fund for Sarah Lawrence raised over $3,600,000 in unrestricted dollars to be used by the administration for the College’s greatest priorities.
Though the U.S. economy does seem to be improving slightly we are very aware that many of our students continue to need the scholarship support that comes through the Parents Fund. There are so many reasons to give to the Parents Fund, including supporting all of our students and our extraordinary faculty. Our annual giving theme for 2015 is Embracing Passion, Realizing Purpose, which is appropriate for all of our new and current students and all SLC alumni. Please help all SLC students embrace their passion and realize their purpose and donate whatever you can to the 2015 Parents Fund today.
In addition to participating in the Parents Fund, there are a myriad of ways for parents to get involved with Sarah Lawrence, including hosting receptions, acting as ambassadors at admitted student receptions and in your home communities, becoming career mentors, offering student internships, attending Sarah Lawrence events on campus or around the globe and/or making phone calls on behalf of the College. Parents of Sarah Lawrence students are equally as creative and dynamic as their children, and we encourage you to bring that ingenuity to SLC. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (914) 395-2523 if you are interested in becoming involved.
We wish you and your child a wonderful and successful fall semester.
