Supporting University Liggett School

Ways to Give

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 programs and through the Annual Fund, we’re able to create an environment that nurtures our students as they start a lifelong journey of discovery. We do this by making upgrades to our classrooms, technology, and athletic facilities and through field trips, arts, music, and extracurricular activities. Your generosity ensures that we can continue our mission of nurturing the passions of every student at University Liggett School.  

There are many ways to honor friends and loved ones. but none is lasting as a gift that impacts the future. A memorial or special occasion contribution to University Liggett School honors friends and loved ones.

Give to one of our Memorial campaigns:

By making a gift today, you help us with our day-to-day needs, but by planning a gift in your estate you secure our future. University Liggett School provides a variety of opportunities for planned gifts. A planned gift can be made now or after your lifetime.

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.
