The Lipscomb Associate

Your investment impacts students lives…

The Lipscomb Associate is a donor who makes things happen in a special way. Defined as any donor who annually gives $1000* 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 have to double in size to provide the same benefit our Associates create through their generosity every year. These vital contributions fill the gap between Lipscomb’s operating income and expenditures, propel key programs and assist in keeping Lipscomb one of the best values among universities nationwide.

*excludes gifts restricted to facilities and the permanent endowment
