The purpose of the Development Office is to complement and
enhance the mission of the college. Gifts of every size not only
make the college stronger and more vibrant, each dollar raised
provides faculty and staff greater opportunity to meet students'
Development team members work with LWC alumni and
friends to engage, inform and generate financial resources
to support students and faculty. In an environment where more
than 80 percent of students are first-generation students
and more than 95 percent need financial assistance,
the development team is committed to
securing scholarship support through the Lindsey Wilson Annual
Fund, major gifts, community campaigns and alumni giving.
LWC has many objectives that will only become reality
through the support of alumni and friends:
- increase the Lindsey Wilson Endowment to at least $100
- build a performing arts center to meet the region's
- build a 24 -hour learning center;
- build a new classroom building and dining center;
- continued investment in faculty and academic programs;
- fund the creation of doctoral programs.
'Changing Lives Campaign'
Announced in April 2002, the campaign to raise $33 million
was scheduled to be completed June 30, 2007. During that
time, the campaign raised almost $37 million. Because of
its success, the Board of Trustees voted to extend it through June
30, 2010, and to raise its goal to $53 million. The campaign
surpassed the $53 million goal weeks ahead of the deadline, raising
nearly $56 million. During the "Changing Lives Campaign" the
college was able to:
- build the 73,000-square-foot Doris and Bob Holloway Health
& Wellness Center for students and the community;
- renovate the Goodhue Building to create more usable classroom
- renovate the T.D and Rowena Everett Center, which houses the
Academic Success Center and Freshman Year Experience program;
- construct the 186-bed Harold J. Smith Hall;
- build the Sumner Campus Ministry Center and its addition, the
Norma and Glen Hodge Center for Discipleship, just three years
- build the 42,000-square-foot Jim and Helen Lee Fugitte Science
- and build the Lindsey Wilson Sports Park, home of LWC baseball,
football, softball, and track and field.
