Harlaxton Society Endowment Campaign
The Harlaxton Society Board of Directors is leading efforts to raise $200,000 to endow the Harlaxton Society Scholarships. Each year 20 UE students receive $500 scholarships toward their studies at Harlaxton. The board regularly hears back from the students grateful for the extra help that allowed them to get the full Harlaxton Experience. These gifts do make a difference.
Currently $158,000.00 in gifts and pledges has been received. More help is needed from Harlaxton Alumni who can make possible the tradition for more students. Please consider making a gift. You can give online. Be sure to indicate Harlaxton Society under Gift Designation.
The Harlaxton Society awarded 12 scholarships to UE students studying at Harlaxton Fall semester 2014 at their on campus meeting, April 25, 2014. Pictured are six of the recipients and members of the board.
