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:
The Annual CampaignThe Annual Campaign is a continuous fund raising effort for Friends of Balamand who wish to contribute to the University. Any amount is welcome, and our hope that the participants will pledge to make a contribution every year.
The list of contributors is on this website and will be in University publications. As a person contributes year after year, the cumulative amount will show in the appropriate contributions category, unless the person requests not to have the name shown.
Friends of Balamand categories are as follows:
Pillars are the generous donors to the UOB Fund who have contributed one million US $ or more to the advancement of the University’s academic program and the building of the Campus.
The support of these donors can establish an endowed chair or erect a building, or help set-up a computer laboratory or fund other major projects in the University.
Fellows are donors whose support enables the University to build on its mission and adapt to the changing economic needs. Such donations are usually channeled by the University to strengthen its Endowment Fund.
We are grateful for your assistance in any category.
