It’s a great day to support Alice Lloyd students!
Maybe no other college in America provides the kind of financial assistance to students that Alice Lloyd College does. Deserving students from 108 central Appalachian counties in our service area attend with no out-of-pocket costs for tuition.
Alice Lloyd College must raise $2.1 million per year, in addition to endowment earnings, to meet the current operating budget. Each year, $1.9 million is needed to meet the scholarship needs of Appalachian students. As a private, not-for-profit, educational institution, every dollar given is extremely important and very much appreciated. You may like to know that 89.4% of our annual budget goes directly toward providing educational opportunities to Appalachian students.
Alumni, you play a very important part!
Alice Lloyd has always been fortunate to have faithful and generous alumni. Our alumni know just how important an Alice Lloyd education is to the young people of Appalachia. Continuing the examples of leadership set by founders Alice Lloyd and June Buchanan, they give back to the College so that others may receive the opportunities they have had. Last year, U.S. News and World Report named ALC the top college for alumni giving among all regional colleges and universities and tied for 29th in the nation among all colleges and universities. At the end of the fiscal year, the College celebrated the highest alumni giving percentage in its history — a record 42% of alumni supported their alma mater! This is the kind of support Alice Lloyd College needs in order to continue shaping and changing lives in Appalachia.
Now, we’re getting close to the end of the fiscal year, just as our students are nearing their educational goals. Donations from alumni are critical in meeting the guarantee we make to students. One of the major priorities of Alice Lloyd College is to ensure that future students have opportunities to obtain quality educations at a low cost. Please help all of us meet our goals by making a gift by July 31st!
We must hear from 400 alumni by July 31st to close with a winning performance. We need your help to get us to the finish line! Please make a donation today. Click here to make your gift. If you have already made your gift, we thank you.
