Senior Legacy 2017

What is this?

LMU is here because thousands of alumni have given to support our community of student scholars. Senior Legacy is about leaving your mark for future generations. You do that by making a charitable gift to any fund at LMU. You choose what you want to support — your college, service/Greek organization, on-campus club, etc. — after all, it's your legacy!

How does it work?

If you make a minimum gift of $10, you can send someone special a Senior Legacy Note. It can be an underclassman, faculty/staff member, or on-campus organization. Use the note to tell someone how much you appreciate them, wish them luck in their remaining years at LMU, or share a personal experience. 

Why should I do this?

  1. Discover the joy of giving. After graduation, you begin the journey of adulthood – job searching, apartment hunting, bill paying, etc. With these responsibilities comes the incredible feeling of honoring your own philanthropic passions. Think about how much LMU means to you.
  2. Enhance the value of your degree. U.S. News & World Report uses alumni giving as a factor in determining university rankings. Rankings directly affect the value of your degree. Giving to LMU annually shows your pride in your LMU experience, and it increases our national prominence.
  3. Make a difference. Your gift can provide student scholarships, financial aid, campus improvements, support our low student to faculty ratio, and sustain your most beloved on-campus organization. Designate your gift to where it matters to you!

Who can participate in Senior Legacy?

Any senior in the Class of 2017 can participate.

How does my Legacy Note get to my honoree?

LMU takes care of that for you! It’s simple: follow the steps on the giving page, include your Legacy Note, and we will send it to your honoree. Please note: minimum gift per note is $10.

Will my honoree know how much I gave?

What’s in it for me?

We're glad you asked. Check out the great stuff you get for participating.

What if I want to give less than $10?

You can! Any gift — no matter the size — is generous. To send a Legacy Note, there is a minimum requirement of $10, but LMU accepts gifts of all sizes. Even if it's just $1, your gift counts toward alumni participation, and ultimately our rankings in the prestigious U.S. News & World Report. Every gift counts!

Where does my gift go?

It goes to any on-campus fund you want! The giving page provides you with more than 350 designations on campus. Please note: only one designation per gift.
