Message from the President

Philanthropy is the desire and opportunity to make a difference in our world. I’m inspired by all of the ways in which our community is helping Franklin & Marshall further its educational mission. As you’ll see throughout this report, your investment in our work is making a tremendous difference in the lives of talented students and in society.

Together, we are bringing interdisciplinary approaches to bear on real-world problems, creating student jobs that also help the Lancaster community, reclaiming the American ideal of the scholar-athlete, and preparing today’s students to become tomorrow’s leaders in all walks of life.

On behalf of the entire College community, thank you for your support, and for all that you do for Franklin & Marshall.


Daniel R. Porterfield, Ph.D.
