About the Balamand Educational Foundation

The Balamand Educational Foundation was established in 1995 to advance the mission of the University of Balamand and to promote higher education and research in Lebanon and the region. Our primary objective is to reach to friends of Balamand in North America and strengthen ties with the University.

As a non-profit private institution, the University of Balamand depends on gifts and donations to maintain its standards of excellence and expand its services. In the past, Foundation activities have supported faculty training, library resources, curriculum enrichment, medical student training in the US, and have provided financial aid for deserving students based on need and merit.

The Foundation is a 501 C-3 non-profit organization that is tax exempt and to which, all contributions are tax-deductible. There are many ways that residents and citizens of the United States and Canada can contribute, through the Foundation, to help the University of Balamand. Donors can earmark their gifts to the Scholarship Fund, the Endowments Program, or to a particular Faculty or specific purpose Center or Institute. They can also give through estate planning by establishing charitable remainders trusts or by placing the Foundation in their bequest.
