The Annual Fund and Parent Fund allow Haverford to meet needs in:

Academic Enrichment:

Your gift benefits student learning, faculty teaching, and collaborative research by funding academic departments, curriculum development, library acquisitions, technology services, and the academic centers.

Financial Aid:

Your gift sustains the College's need-blind admission policy so that a Haverford education is accessible to all academically-qualified students who are most able to benefit from and contribute to this community–regardless of their ability to pay.

Athletics:

Your gift helps foster a culture of intellectual, physical, and personal development by underwriting varsity and club teams, intramural programs, classes, and recreational activities.

Campus & Facilities:

Your gift provides funding for the maintenance, grounds- and house-keeping, upgrades, and beautification that the campus and facilities require in order to meet the living and learning needs of our community.

Student Life:

Your gift supports opportunities and resources such as Customs, Honor Council, career development, and more than 200 clubs, so that the Haverford experience is one that educates the whole student.

Greatest Need:

Your gift allows the College the greatest flexibility by providing support without restrictions. This option allows the College to determine where your gift will make the greatest impact.

Participation as a donor makes a difference—no matter how much you give:

  • Participation influences foundations and other funders, impacting grant-making decisions.

  • Participation factors into our U.S. News & World Report rankings.

  • Our alumni body is small, so we need more people to give to meet all of the needs that make the Haverford experience life-changing for generations of students.

No matter how you give, or how much, we thank you.
