As we approach the end of our fiscal year, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has supported the university. Whether through annual gifts to the Lehigh Fund or a donation designated to a particular college, program or project tied to your passion, your generosity has an immediate impact on the university. The annual fund, for example, fuels financial aid, which provides vital assistance to many current students.
You can also be proud knowing that Lehigh’s impact is felt throughout the world. As a leading research institution, we’re driving research that uncovers valuable knowledge. Furthermore, countless alumni become leaders in their professions, communities, and continue to tackle grand challenges in the far-reaching corners of the world.
Your support benefits you, too. Alumni participation in annual giving increases national rankings and the university’s overall reputation, and therefore increases the value of your degree. Any gift, no matter the size, counts. It’s a great way to stand up and be counted.
Lehigh is a better place because of those who truly care about the university and its mission. Many thanks for your support, and if you’ve been meaning to make a gift, there’s still time before the fiscal year ends on June 30. Visit mylehigh.lehigh.edu/giving.
Have a wonderful summer!
Robert W. Wolfenden
Assistant Vice President for Alumni Relations
P.S. We just got word that Boston University is joining the Patriot League next year. That means more opportunities for our alumni living in New England to see the Mountain Hawks play! Visit the Patriot League website for details.
