La Roche University Giving
La Roche Gives is a 24-hour fundraising and on-campus event where we invite the entire University community to come together in support of the students and programs of La Roche. During this day, your gift to La Roche will go further than any other day! If we meet our goal of 325 donors, we will unlock $20,000 from our generous sponsors. Other fun, surprise challenges will be announced throughout the day.
Also included in the La Roche Gives Day of Giving will be a community drive-through food collection for the La Roche Providence Food Pantry, which helps students in need. A variety of student service projects leading up to and on April 27 will enhance these giving opportunities.
At La Roche you can find future scientists, healthcare professionals, teachers, business entrepreneurs, writers and artists. You can experience rigorous academics that inspire creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. You can be involved in service to others through numerous humanitarian projects. You can express your faith and learn about other cultures and customs. You can find a caring spirit and you can realize your dreams.
