How to Make A Gift
Choose one or more of these outright gift giving methods to benefit LMU now:
Unrestricted Gifts: Your unrestricted gift is the most direct way to support LMU’s current operating needs. Many alumni choose to support the Annual Fund each year. This allows us to apply resources toward those needs of critical importance such as institutional aid, new academic initiatives, and equipment. Annual gifts can also be designated for use by specific departments, athletics programs, and other current initiatives.
Endowed Gifts: Throughout the years, many alumni and friends have established funds for endowed scholarships, faculty development, and other purposes. Endowed scholarships begin at the $25,000 level, and the funds are invested so that the interest generates an annual award while the principal continues to grow over time. Endowed gifts provide LMU with longterm flexibility, ensuring that resources will continue to be available for years to come.
Matching Gifts: Many corporations match the charitable gifts of their employees. This is a great way to maximize the impact of your gift! Check with your employer to obtain matching gift forms that you can send in with your LMU gift.
Non-Cash/Personal Property: LMU also benefits from the generous contributions of non-cash gifts that are directly related to the institution’s mission. Please call 423.869.6351 for more information about making a non-cash contribution.
Planned Gifts: Planned giving encompasses a wide range of opportunities. From including LMU in your will to establishing a charitable gift annuity or a trust, there are many options that can benefit both you and LMU. In every case, you can help provide resources for future generations of LMU students while often receiving immediate tax benefits for you and your family. Please contact us for more information about specific ways to make a planned gift to LMU.
