    On any given day at Suffolk University, growth and opportunities abound. Critically important historic, scientific, social, business, and legal matters are actively explored in our classrooms, and students gather after hours to attend clubs, workshops, and professional development events.

    This growth and opportunity are possible, thanks, in part, to the donations made to Suffolk by people like you.

    Today, on our annual Day of Giving, I hope you will consider the role you play in ensuring Suffolk students’ pursuit of educational growth and opportunity.

    Throughout our history—since our founding in 1906—there have been calls to action to address issues impacting our region, our commonwealth, and our nation. Currently, due to a national delay in the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) process, our most economically vulnerable students are at risk. U.S. News & World Report has identified this difficult situation as having “a domino effect” that is delaying the complex process so much that students with the greatest need—both current students and those who are applying—may not be in a position to continue their education or enroll as they had planned in Fall 2024.

    The majority of our Suffolk undergraduates have a demonstrated need for scholarship support. In fact, 91% of our undergraduate students receive financial aid, and 46% are the first in their families to attend college. Similarly, a significant percentage of our graduate students, including those at the Law School, are first-generation. We’re proud of the role we play in providing access to education. As you support our annual Day of Giving on March 20, I ask that you consider directing all or part of your donation to our CAS, SBS, or Law School Need-Based Suffolk Scholarship Funds.

    We understand that you may choose to support another area of Suffolk that is meaningful to you; that is also greatly appreciated. Your gift, no matter the purpose, will help ensure access and educational opportunity for many of our students. 

    Our Suffolk community is comprised of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends, and greater community partners. Thank you for being a part of our community and ensuring that, on any given day at Suffolk, wonderful things are happening.
