Annual Giving

The Fund for LMU

The Fund for LMU consists of donations utilized by LMU for current year use. Tuition covers 83% of the cost of an LMU education. And, unlike some of our peers, LMU's endowment currently does not generate the income required to meet the immediate needs of our students. Gifts to The Fund for LMU allow the university to maximize opportunities and address our most pressing needs, ensuring LMU is meeting the ever-growing requirements of a 21st century education. Please help us honor our past as we build our future - make your gift today. LMU's giving year begins June 1 and runs through May 31.

Why Give?

Every gift has the power to have an impact. Individually and collectively, your gifts enable us to provide students with irreplaceable educational experiences that shape their dreams and set them on the path to lifelong success. Your donation helps build state-of-the-art facilities, support unique student opportunities and finance the research grants that attract exceptional faculty members. Charitable donations of all sizes ensure that LMU remains a premier Catholic institution.
