Donors and Friends

Introduction
Welcome to the University of Balamand ’s website for Alumni, Donors and Friends. The site, maintained by the Office of Development assists you in finding information about different ways to collaborate with and support the University, its students, Faculties and Programs. Please take a moment to enter your e-mail address  so that we can send you information about important events from time to time.

As you may know, the costs of education at the University exceed the amounts paid by students for tuition. We therefore welcome contributions to the University in order to maintain our standards of educational excellence and to expand the services of the University. Helping young people to learn is one of the best investments in the future that  you can make. The names of all contributors are listed on this website and in University publications.

General contributions, no matter how big or small, allow the University to use them where there is greatest need. However, you may also designate your contribution to a specific Faculty or Program. All contributions are recognized, and major donors receive a  report about progress achieved through their funding.

Contributions may be made through any of the following funding programs:

  1. The Ann​ual Campaign
    This is an on-going effort. A contributions form and directions are attached
  2. Specific Faculties, Programs and Projects
  3. Tax Deductible Contributions in the United States  
  4. The Adoptions Fund For those who wish trees, gardens, pathways, halls and pavements to be dedicated with their names.
  5. Legacy
    For those who wish to remember the University of Balamand in their wills
  6. Proposals
    If you wish to propose a specific new project in cooperation with the University, please contact us at Development@balamand.edu.lb
