Le Moyne College Fund
Every year Le Moyne College strives to keep the cost of a transformative education accessible to the diverse student body.
The cost of a Le Moyne education is about $46,200 per year –including tuition, fees, room, board, and personal expenses such as travel and books. This is a daunting price tag for many families struggling in this challenging economy.
We need the support of alumni and the community to make Le Moyne possible for deserving students.
90% of Le Moyne students receive financial aid and 25% of undergraduates are first-generation college students. Donations to the LMC Fund help to ensure that they are not denied the benefit of a Le Moyne education simply because they cannot afford it.
At Le Moyne, the college journey isn’t just about making the grade. It’s about making connections, pursuing experiences, and developing a toolbox for critical thinking. Le Moyne’s students benefit from a rigorous common core that nurtures inquiry and awareness of transformative ideas. Infused with the principles of the Jesuit tradition, the core prepares students by educating the whole person.
It begins in the classroom. That is where Le Moyne students start to question, encounter, discover and form bonds with faculty members and classmates to last a lifetime. The College has a student-to-faculty ratio of 13:1. That makes a difference. Le Moyne Professors can speak not just to their students’ performance in the classroom, but also to their dreams for the future.
When students put what they have learned in the classroom to work- as they conduct research, study abroad or complete an internship, something deep inside them “clicks.” These experiences out of the classroom aid students in strengthening their skills, gaining confidence in their abilities, and building their professional networks. They are critical to what we do here at Le Moyne.
Donor support keeps class sizes small and provides research and service-learning experiences that shape students into tomorrow’s world leaders.
- You don't have to use cash to make your gift — you can give us appreciated securities instead, and use an asset that costs you less than the tax deduction you'll get for it today.
- You may be holding assets that would benefit the College more than they do you — such as a life insurance policy that you no longer need, a parcel of real estate like a second home or undeveloped land, or a collection of books or artwork that you no longer have room to display.
- You can make a gift that costs you nothing during your lifetime — make us a beneficiary of your will or revocable trust, or a beneficiary of your retirement plan, and leave your cash flow and current financial planning uninterrupted.
- You can make the College a partner in your giving — you can deed us your home but continue to live there, you can sell us property at a charitable discount, and you can make a gift that pays you lifetime income.
