Supporting University Liggett School

Ways to Give

ANNUAL FUND
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.

SCHOLARSHIPS

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.
