Dear Neighbor Fund

At Regis, we welcome all without distinction and strive to support members of our community who need help academically, emotionally, and financially. With the loving help and generosity of our entire community, the university started the Dear Neighbor Fund in 2010.

Founders Day













Lynn Tripp ColemanCreated in the honor of former Vice President of Student Affairs Lynn Tripp Coleman, Regis College Class of 1977, the Dear Neighbor Fund provides specialized support to Regis students in need through the following programs: 

  • The Hospitality Center
  • The Emergency Assistance Program
  • The Housing Program

For more than thirty years, the focus of Lynn’s life was the students at Regis College. For her, they were the "dear neighbor." Their successes were her delight, their struggles were her concerns, and their initiatives were her cause.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Regis has created two designations to extend the support of the Dear Neighbor Fund to staff and faculty in addition to students during this uncertain time. As the needs of our community members continue to evolve as this crisis evolves, we are creating this option for donors to designate their gift within the Dear Neighbor Fund. 

To make your gift and choose your designation, please use the form below. If you wish to split your gift between both designations, please enter the amount of your gift and click the "add donation" button. You may do this twice to split your gift to both designations before completing your gift transaction.

Thank you for supporting the Regis community!
