The City University of New York 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West Bronx, NY 10468-1589 Nonprofit Organization U.S. Postage PAID Bronx, NY Permit No. 632 past, present, future Lehman Today Creates Lehman Tomorrow Our college, its campus, programs, faculty, students—in essence, its future, is a guaranteed success as long we help keep the vision alive. Today, New York State funding contributes only about thirty percent of the College’s annual operating budget. Tuition, external grants for research and sponsored programs, and gifts from alumni and friends make up the difference. These gifts expand Lehman’s academic programs, establish endowed chairs and professorships, and upgrade facilities, instrumentation, and equipment––which all increase the value of a Lehman education as well as a Lehman degree. Most important, these private dollars make scholarship support available for many students who otherwise could not afford to attend Lehman. Please consider making a gift to help Lehman College fulfill its mission and build both its future and that of its students.
