Restricted and Unrestricted Giving

Any gift given to the University with a specific request falls into the category of restricted giving. It would be impossible to list all of them, but some examples are gifts for annual and endowed scholarships, building projects, sports programs or special events.

Sometimes an outright ask will be made for a specific project, but restricted gifts can be made anytime to a University department or program.

An unrestricted gift is a gift that is given to LMU without any restrictions on its use, and these gifts go toward LMU's Annual Fund.

Gifts free of restriction allow LMU to place resources where they are most immediately needed or where opportunities are great.

Common uses of unrestricted funds include student aid, renovations, new academic initiatives, and the purchase of books, collections and equipment.
