2018 LC Day of Giving A Success!

A huge thank you to the LC campus community for supporting the third annual Day of Giving!

A huge thank you to the LC campus community for supporting the third annual Day of Giving.

Because of you, we surpassed our goal of 1,867 gifts, from faculty, staff, students, parents, alumni, and friends from all three schools. With our success, we unlocked a $150,000 match from our Board of Trustees.

Staff and faculty are an integral part of the day’s success – thank you for your amazing support of LC students!

Here are results for our on-campus challenges:

Jane Atkinson, Vice President and Provost, will give $35 for every staff person in Campus Safety, Financial Aid, Hoffman Gallery, Information Technology, Institutional Research, Religious and Spiritual Life who makes a gift. 14 gifts made!

Alan Finn, Vice President for Business, will contribute $25 for every gift made by staff from the Business Office, Human Resources, Facilities, Office of Financial Planning and Analysis, Student and Departmental Account Services, or Sustainability Office (up to $1,000). 23 gifts made!

Scott Fletcher, Dean of the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, has pledged $2,000 to the Graduate School’s Annual Fund and will add $500 if at least 50% of graduate faculty and staff participate in this year’s Day of Giving. Challenge met!

Anna Gonzalez, Dean of Students, will contribute $1,000 to the Annual Fund if 400 students make gifts. 226 gifts made!

Jennifer Johnson, Dean of the Law School, has pledged $1,000 to the Law School’s Annual Fund after 150 gifts are made to the Law School. Challenge met!

If 50% of staff and faculty from these departments make gifts, every staff and faculty member will have a chance to win a reserved parking space in the Fir Acres Lot for the remainder of the semester. Success! Winner to be determined.

Josh Walter, Vice President for Institutional Advancement, will contribute $1,867 to the Annual Fund if 100% of Institutional Advancement makes a gift.
