The Lasell Fund

To better deliver the critically important message of supporting the College, we have renamed our Annual Fund program The Lasell Fund.  Through The Lasell Fund, the opportunity to direct yearly contributions to specific areas of the College continues, while the message found in the new title makes unequivocal what this program supports.  Gifts to The Lasell Fund support the Lasell community - the students, the faculty, the College itself.
