Meet our donors
Lipscomb could not exist without donations—truly. Tuition only covers about 80% of the costs of operating the university; contributions from our generous supporters allow us to keep running and keep moving forward.
Gifts from our alumni show us that a Lipscomb education works. They confirm that we’ve succeeded at reinforcing loyalty, responsibility, and service in all who attend our university. But alumni gifts do something more: they help us build our reputation and with it, the value of a Lipscomb degree. When alumni contribute to Lipscomb, it directly affects U.S. News & World Report rankings and attracts grant-awarding foundations. These entities see alumni donations as a mark of confidence and satisfaction—and so do we.
