Your generosity allows us to continue in our tradition of fostering profound growth and understanding in our students, today and always.

Every University Liggett School education relies on the Annual Fund. More than 25% of the cost of each student’s University Liggett School experience is paid for with tax-deductible gifts from faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends of the school. Gifts to the Annual Fund have an immediate and direct impact on our students and help create an environment that nurtures our learners as they start a lifelong journey of discovery. Annual Fund gifts allow us to make upgrades to our classrooms, technology, and athletic facilities and support field trips, arts, music, and extracurricular activities. Your generosity ensures that we can continue our mission of advancing the passions of every student at University Liggett School.

University Liggett School provides a variety of opportunities for sponsorship and advertising on campus.  Some of these opportunities include advertising space on our athletic fields, performing arts programming, arts programming, special events and print communications.

Our Fall Raffle begins in November and runs for five weeks. Proceeds from the raffle support academic initiatives, technology, building improvements, athletic equipment, and more. Your participation is vital to the school and is appreciated by everyone!

Few gifts have the power to shape and transform lives more than those that support student scholarships. University Liggett School offers many scholarships to students from across the region to give them an opportunity to begin or continue their studies at our school. Our scholarship programs allow us to recognize and recruit the best and brightest students: those with academic strength and promise. leadership qualities, a range of extracurricular interests, and those who will take part in - and contribute to - the life of the school. We offer both merit- and need-based scholarships.

Launched in 2012, the Sure Foundations campaign was University Liggett School’s comprehensive campaign to raise $50 million to transform our campus. Every single gift made to the school since 2012 counted toward the campaign, which supported the investment of a new athletic facility and fields, an increased endowment fund and annual operational support.
