Why Give?

There are so many wonderful causes that deserve our attention and support in today’s world, so why do we believe that you should give to Alice Lloyd College?

It’s simple: by supporting us, you will be supporting over 600 talented mountain students whose success will greatly contribute to the betterment of all of Appalachia and beyond.

Alice Lloyd College offers its students a unique opportunity: through the Appalachian Leaders College Scholarship, all students from our 108-county service area do not pay any out-of-pocket costs for tuition. The majority of our students come from low-income families. If not for the financial assistance provided by Alice Lloyd, it is entirely likely that many of them would have to miss out on obtaining a college education. A gift to Alice Lloyd is not a hand-out; it is a helping hand. Your gift will give them the chance to make their dreams a reality.

All of our full-time students are required to work in our Student Work Program. Our work program helps finance their educational expenses while at the same time promoting a sense of dignity and self-help. Requiring students to work is truly a distinctive feature of Alice Lloyd College, and so committed is the College to the concept of student labor that successful completion of the work requirement is a graduation requirement. What’s more, 95% of our students are either in graduate school or employed within six months of graduation.

To our knowledge, Alice Lloyd is the only school to provide its students with a bachelor’s degree and financially assist many of its graduates as they pursue advanced degrees. Eighty-three percent of our graduates return to lead and serve in the region, and most have no debt.

When you give to Alice Lloyd College, you are helping to change thousands of lives and the future of an entire region. Nearly 90% of every operating dollar we raise goes to support our students. Your gift is a vote of confidence in Appalachia’s young people to be the catalysts for positive change.
