Lipscomb Associates

Your investment impacts students lives…

Lipscomb Associates commit to annual contributions of $1,000 or more, providing the long-term, immediate-impact giving that creates the high-quality, high-touch Christian education experience that is Lipscomb. Associates allow us to expand our academic programs, the diversity of our student body, scholarships and the services and resources we offer, on campus and off. By funding strategic plans and new initiatives, Associates help us move toward the future with a wider reach, greater impact in the lives of students and community and an ascending reputation. Also, Associates automatically gain access to Lipscomb's prestigious IMAGINE event each year.

IMAGINE

Imagine is an event hosted by Lipscomb University that brings world-renowned leaders to Nashville to engage the community on topics of importance…to hear their own stories and perspectives…to share their own ideas and to see their vision for the world in the 21st century. Previous guests include President George W. Bush, Magic and Cookie Johnson, and Tom Brokaw. This event is not open to the public and is exclusively for Lipscomb Associates.

The Lipscomb Associate is an investor who makes things happen in a special way. Defined as anyone who annually gives $1,000* or more in a 12-month period, Associates are our core partners who make scholarships, special initiatives, academic enrichment and more happen. Our endowment would need to double in size to provide the same benefit our Associates create through their generosity every year. These vital contributions propel key programs and assist in keeping Lipscomb one of the best values among universities nationwide.
