“Propelled by our mission, each of our donors plays an essential role to ensure that LMU is the place where the most creative minds come together to deepen and further their imaginations to help us create the world we want to live in.”

— LMU President Timothy Law Snyder, Ph.D.

Support a Lion Education

Contributions from alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends are critical to fulfilling LMU's educational mission. They help LMU maintain the caliber of its academic offerings, attract exceptional students, and provide them with much-needed financial aid. Private donations also allow the university to strengthen the academic programs of its seven schools and colleges, recruit outstanding faculty, and increase research opportunities. There is no substitute for the type of teaching and learning that LMU provides. Your support makes this possible.
