Welcome to the Front Porch

Asa Packer Society members are among Lehigh’s most powerful donors. You understand the impact you can have on students and on Lehigh, and you answer the call year after year. You are committed to the success of Lehigh for the long term.

As the new director of the Asa Packer Society, I first want to thank you for your support. In my role, I hope to be able to connect you – through events, communications, and conversations – with what is going on here at Lehigh. Lehigh is always changing, and the Asa Packer Society is a great way you can find common ground between your experience and the university of today.

Through the Asa Packer Society, you have a special place here at Lehigh. I picture it as the “front porch” of philanthropic support. It’s a welcoming place where Lehigh’s best friends can come to ask questions, be a voice, have a say, and make a difference. Here, we can talk about what you are passionate about when it comes to Lehigh and share with you ways you can have an even greater, more meaningful impact.

As a fellow member of the Asa Packer Society, I am as excited as you are about the impact we can have with our individual gifts as well as our collective support, and I am eager to get started.

Together, let’s leave a legacy our namesake would be proud of.
