Capital Priorities

Our world cries out for leaders and persons of character who have the courage to make good choices and decisions. That describes Haverford graduates. A Haverford education and experience has a powerful and enduring impact on all our community, which in turn can make a powerful difference in the lives of others and their communities.

– Former Haverford Board Chair Bill Thorkelson

Capital gifts build a lasting legacy for current and future generations at Haverford.

In recent years, capital gifts to the School have advanced a wide range of vital programs and initiatives that provide and sustain the very essence of a Haverford education. These include, but are not limited to: tuition assistance, faculty support, facility enhancements, the Honor Code, the Math Initiative, Decision Education, the visiting foreign student program, various speaker programs, and artists-in-residence.

Gifts to Endowment

Many capital gifts are endowed gifts. These contributions make an enduring difference in the quality of life at the School while at the same time providing a lasting legacy for the donor.
