Updates
We did it! But let's keep going!

Thanks to dedicated Laurentians, we have exceeded our initial goal!  Our challenge donors have been so inspired by the Laurentian community that they have offered an additional $100,000 if 500 more Laurentians make a gift in the next 5 hours!  Go Saints!

Senior Parent Challenge

Attention Parents of Seniors!! In an effort to encourage gifts to the Senior Parent Initiative (SPI), anonymous parents of a senior will donate $500 for every gift made to St. Lawrence University by a parent of a senior during the remainder of the 1856 Minute Challenge (up to $25,000).

What is the SPI?  It's a fundraising campaign that encourages parents to honor their students' St. Lawrence experience by making a gift towards one of the University's top priorities. SPI contributions will support the St. Lawrence Fund and provide an opportunity to celebrate Excellence in Teaching.

Why Excellence in Teaching?  At St. Lawrence we pride ourselves on sense of community. As Laurentian parents you understand that the University's legacy of academic excellence is rooted in relationships with faculty, coaches, and staff that inspire passion and tenacity. These individuals have helped your senior dream - deepened their understanding and transformed their experience.

Now you can honor these relationships, celebrate the achievements of your student and recognize the mentors who helped shape their futures as confident, caring individuals with steadfast Laurentian Spirit.

How will my support of the SPI impact St. Lawrence?  The combined generosity of senior parents will expand opportunities for St. Lawrence to attract and retain academic leaders and emerging faculty who will enhance the University's national reputation, encourage further innovation and discovery, and help future students realize their full potential.

Support St. Lawrence while honoring your student and/or a Laurentian Mentor.

Show SLU Your Love.  

You have until 5 pm on Tuesday, April 4th to make your gift. All gifts will be counted in the Challenge.
