LHU to hold 24-hour

scholarship fundraiser

LOCK HAVEN– Lock Haven University will hold its fourth annual All In Day of Giving scholarship fundraiser from noon on Thursday, April 4 through noon on Friday, April 5. All In is a 24-hour day of giving challenge in which donations are made toward student scholarships in support of specific LHU programs.

This year’s overall fundraising goal is $50,000, with funds going to support scholarships for student athletes, as well as the university’s Student Retention Scholarship Fund. Donors may choose a specific athletic team to receive their gift or opt to have their donation go specifically to student retention.
