Additional $9,000 match announced!

WE DID IT! Thank you to everyone for helping us reach our goal of 200 alumni donors! We have officially unlocked an additional $20,000 for financial aid at Latin!

Help us reach 200 alumni donors and a group of generous Latin alums will donate $20,000 to financial aid!

Welcome to the #GoYouRomans Latin alumni giving challenge for financial aid! Our goal is to secure 200 donations before April 22 at midnight. If we reach our goal, a generous group of alums will give an additional $20,000 to support financial aid. Join us today with a one time gift of any size or become a monthly donor to provide sustained support to Latin. 

This year has been challenging for so many. We saw an increase in need for financial aid and we know that the economic impact of the pandemic will likely continue for the next few years. We hope you will consider a gift to support Latin’s financial aid program to ensure the resources are in place to support the next generation of Romans and provide them with the opportunities that will make their Latin experience incredible.

Financial aid opens doors for our community and expands access to a Latin education by making it more accessible to people from all socioeconomic backgrounds. Support from financial aid goes beyond just tuition. It can help cover costs associated with student transportation to and from school, meals and experiences like project week. 

Every gift matters and every gift enables us to provide excellence in education to the next generation of Romans. Watch out for a few surprises during the campaign including several chances to double your donation and giving challenges from other Latin alums.  

Want to help even more? Spread the word about this campaign to your friends and fellow Latin alums. Click here for our digital media toolkit that includes tips for spreading the word, helpful how-to's and #GoYouRomans branded images you can use on social media. Thanks for helping us spread the word!
