Parents Fund

You can be an advocate for your student by financially supporting the LMU Parents Fund. Gifts are a further investment in your student's future because these funds directly benefit their academic and co-curricular experience.
Gifts to the Parents Fund are used where they're most needed to immediately benefit students. Your gift supports:

  • Scholarships
  • Academic programs
  • Service learning, global engagement, and immersion experiences
  • Student initiatives
  • Information Technology

Every gift is meaningful and demonstrates your belief in the transforming power of education.
