Lubbock Christian University Foundation works specifically on strategic initiatives to promote LCU. Our aim is to build on the momentum of each successful project to continue creating exciting opportunities for the university and for LCU students.

Priorities:

  • New science building

    Because enrollment in the sciences has increased rapidly in recent years, we have outgrown our current classrooms and buildings. The new science building will house staff and classrooms in one location, and the updated facilities and equipment will take LCU’s science program to the next level.

    Nursing program

    An ongoing initiative for LCU Foundation has been the development of the partnership program between LCU Department of Nursing and Covenant School of Nursing. To accommodate the growing partnership, we are raising funds for a new center for nursing education on LCU’s campus.

    Leadership

    LCU Foundation is supporting LCU’s commitment to leadership through the launch of the Jones Leadership Center. We are also working to expand LCU’s existing Washington, D.C. internship program and to provide scholarships for faculty and student research and conferences.

    Athletics to NCAA Div II

    LCU Athletics was accepted into NCAA Div. II candidacy last year, and we are now in the three-year process of transitioning all eleven varsity athletic programs from NAIA to NCAA. The next step in the transition is ensuring that our facilities and equipment meet NCAA standards.

Ways to give

Whether it is through a cash gift, planned gift, a gift in kind, or one of the other many types of gifts listed below, your involvement shows a powerful commitment to the mission and values of Lubbock Christian University.

Cash gifts

Cash gifts are the most common, and the easiest, way to donate. You can make a one-time gift or a recurring gift on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. You can even give now.

Pledges

Pledging an amount now and spreading payments over time allows you to make a more generous gift. We can accept pledges for gifts to be made over a period of three years or longer.

Securities

You can make a gift of appreciated marketable securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, by transferring these assets to the Lubbock Christian University Foundation.

Real estate

Real estate can be a valuable gift to LCU. We can advise you and assist you in giving residences, farms, commercial buildings, land parcels or other types of property to the university.

Planned gifts

Make a long-term contribution to LCU that involves your life insurance policy, estate plan, charitable gift annuity or other planned gift. We can help you arrange and process your planned gift.

Gifts in kind

Gifts of tangible personal property, such as art, antiques, various collectibles, and many other items can also benefit LCU.

Endowed gifts

Through an endowed gift, you can help LCU lay the groundwork for continued success as a competitive university. Your investment in LCU can be used to support a program, scholarship, or faculty chair position. These gifts typically bear the donor’s name, celebrating your commitment to and support of LCU.

Gifts in memory/in honor

Many donors establish gifts to honor a loved one or special mentor, professor or friend. These unique gifts not only provide essential support for the university, but also ensure that the honoree’s legacy will endure forever at LCU.

Corporate matching

Many businesses generously match all or part of their employees’ charitable contributions. We can assist you in finding out what your employer’s policy is and in handling the transaction.
