The Parents Fund

The LVC Parents' Fund represents annual gifts received from parents of undergraduates and alumni. Contributions to The Parents' Fund help make possible the outstanding opportunities that are part of your child's educational experience.

Your contribution helps LVC meet its obligations for essentials such as:

  • Scholarships
    More than 85 percent of our students are able to make the dream of a college education a reality because of academic and need-based scholarships.
  • Library Materials
    Your gift to The Parents' Fund helps the Vernon and Doris Bishop Library expand its collections. 
  • Technological Resources
    Student computer labs, high-speed Internet access, and "smart" classrooms are tools that your gifts provide to help LVC students move ahead in this information age.
  • Athletics
    Gifts provide vital support to all athletic programs on campus by purchasing new equipment, maintaining facilities, and enhancing programs.

What about tuition—doesn't it cover these costs?
Tuition payments do not cover the entire expense of a Lebanon Valley education. LVC underwrites a portion of the cost of every student's education—even those who receive no financial aid. The difference is made up every year by charitable gifts from foundations, corporations, alumni, and friends—and from parents through The Parents' Fund.

Will my gift make a difference?
Every gift is important. Every gift makes a difference. A high percentage of parent participation helps the College make a difference in the experience of current students.
