Why give? Lipscomb University was founded almost 125 years ago because two individuals understood that without a generous, faithful heart, great things are not accomplished. Today, generosity is just as important to the university. Students typically can cover only about 75 percent of the cost of their education despite our best efforts to keep the cost of higher education here competitive. It is donor generosity that delivers hundreds of faithful, successful graduates a year to their finish line and a new beginning.

Give a Gift

Philanthropy is a natural extension of our values. It builds community, encourages the extension of knowledge, and hastens the pursuit of innovation. Philanthropy, at its heart, is a way to live our Christian faith by example. Because the best way to celebrate God’s gifts is by sharing them.
