Giving Opportunities

Support Higher Education at Lindenwood – Your Gift Counts!

Your support of Lindenwood University benefits students by providing additional scholarship opportunities, enhanced academic programs, various sports programs, and maintenance and expansion of facilities. Your gifts help equip the leaders of tomorrow!


Student Scholarships
Donations for scholarships in any amount are greatly appreciated by students needing help to achieve their dreams. Endowed scholarships, requiring a gift of $25,000, provide scholarship assistance to thousands of students every year who might not otherwise attend Lindenwood.

Student Honors Awards
This fund named for an individual, family, business, or other organization recognizes deserving students on their outstanding achievements at the University's Honors Convocation each spring. Honor awards start at gifts of $10,000.

Student Emergency Textbook Fund
The increasing cost of books, the tools of a student's trade, sometimes requires help from the Emergency Textbook Fund. Gifts in any amount help this important program.

Annual Fund
Gifts to the Annual Fund help cover the operating costs of the university so tuition and room and board can be kept affordable for the students. These gifts are unrestricted which means they are available to be used where the need is the greatest.

Athletic Boosters
The Lindenwood University athletics department has grown significantly over the past two decades, going from just a few sports to having one of the largest and most successful athletic departments in the nation. Lindenwood currently sponsors 46 varsity athletics teams and continues to thrive thanks to our athletic boosters program. Your membership donation can even be directed to a specific sport.

Brick Paver Stones

Capital Projects
Gifts can be designated to go toward various capital campaigns currently in progress. Naming opportunities are available to recognize contributions at various levels.

Plant a Tree
Lindenwood University was named for the grove of linden trees on our main campus. Linden trees can last for over one hundred years and can commemorate your foresight; all types of trees, along with a special brass plaque, are available for purchase.


Gifts of Cash
Gifts of cash can be made to the Annual Fund, Capital Fund, or the Endowment.

Matching Gifts
Many companies encourage philanthropy by matching your gift. Simply contact your personnel or payroll department for your matching gift form, complete your portion of the form, and mail in with your gift. Click here to view a list of matching gift companies.

Real Estate
An outright gift of appreciated property or a bargain sale agreement produces a current tax deduction for you and a wonderful way to donate to the University.

Gifts of Stock and Other Securities
Transfer of appreciated stock or other appreciated securities can result in a substantial tax savings. Donors receive an income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the stock on the date of the gift -- thus reducing your capital gains.

Tax-Qualified Retirement Plan Gifts
With careful planning, gifts of tax-qualified retirement plans assets, such as IRA's, can reduce your taxes and allow for a charitable gift.

Estate Planning
Your will or trust allows you to distribute a percentage of your estate or a fixed dollar amount to Lindenwood. If you already have a will in place amendment by a simple and inexpensive codicil allows you make a gift and assure your legacy.

Life Insurance
Either the donation of a fully or partially paid policy or the purchase of a new policy naming Lindenwood University as the beneficiary can lead to a substantial deduction for you and a generous and enhanced gift.

Other Planned Gifts
Gift annuities and certain recognized trust vehicles allow you to generate income while realizing tax savings. You can discuss such financial instruments as charitable gift annuities, charitable remainder trusts, and others with our Director of Planned Giving.

Lindenwood Giving Societies
The Butler Society, recognizing lifetime giving levels over $25,000, and the Sibley Heritage Society, recognizing individuals who have made provisions in their estate plans beginning at $1,000 are two special groups of donors who exemplify the giving spirit of those who seek to assure Lindenwood's future.
