Annual Gala Dinner

Since 2012, LAU began holding its annual Fundraising Gala Dinner in Beirut, Lebanon. Each year the event draws together the university’s most important supporters, friends, and alumni from around the region to celebrate LAU’s accomplishments, made possible by its generous donors. The inaugural gala raised an impressive $7.5 million, and the successive events have had excellent fundraising results, all in support of the Gala Dinner Endowed Scholarship Fund to educate needy and deserving students.

Senior Class Gift

The university’s Senior Class Gift Program launched in 2012 by the Office of Development, and encourages graduating students to donate towards their alma mater to collectively plant a class tree on campus, while contributing to the university's scholarship progam. 

Endowed Chairs

The number of full-time faculty members at LAU has more than doubled since 1992. To further strengthen our academic programs and enhance our research output, our faculty must continue to grow. Named endowed chairs are vital in this process as they help attract and retain first-rate faculty who might otherwise be drawn to other institutions.
 

Annual Fund

A robust Annual Fund marks the difference between a sufficient education and an excellent one. As the largest source of current operating funds directly supporting the operation of the university, gifts to the LAU Annual Fund are put to work immediately.
 

Scholarships

LAU is committed to providing an excellent education based on ability, not ability to pay. As such, the scholarship and financial aid programs -- which distributed a total of $26.2 million in aid during the 2016 fiscal year -- are a fundamental part of the university and so too are its efforts to secure funds for this worthy cause. 

Naming Facility Opportunities

Naming opportunities are a truly unique way to make an impact at LAU. As such, we offer opportunities to name tangible entities such as buildings and public spaces, individual rooms and suites, and more.

We also offer opportunities to name intangible entities such as schools, chairs, programs, positions, scholarships, and endowments, which can be discussed in detail with our fundraising directors. Whatever you choose, philanthropic naming provides recognition that creates a lasting legacy.
