Thank You, Alumni, Parents, and Friends

We are so grateful for the support of the nearly 4,500 alumni, parents, and friends who have donated to the Annual Fund since the start of the 2013–2014 Fiscal Year on July 1. As of January 15, we have raised $2,680,112 toward a June 30 goal of $5,750,000, which represents seven percent of the College's budget.

So far this year, 79% of Haverford's donors have directed their Annual Fund gifts to Haverford’s greatest needs (unrestricted). Those who chose to restrict their contributions gave to financial aid (11%), academic enrichment (5%), athletics (3%), student life (1%), and campus and facilities (1%).

To support programs like these, please consider making a gift to Haverford’s Annual Fund if you haven’t done so already. Thank you!
