Why give? Lipscomb University was founded more than 125 years ago because two individuals understood that only through generous, faithful hearts are great things 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 competitive. Donor generosity delivers hundreds of faithful, successful graduates a year to their finish line and a new beginning. 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.
