Lindsey Wilson College “All-In for LWC,” 48-hour challenge begins on Tuesday, Sept. 21. 

The Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees, along with Chairman of the Board and Adair County native Allan Parnell have an important question for LWC alumni and friends -- “How will YOU be All-In for LWC?”

The 48-hour event to raise money for student aid will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 21 and will last until midnight on Wednesday, Sept. 22. The social media campaign dubbed All-In For LWC began in 2014 and has raised more than $4 million.

“Regardless of the challenges we are facing, the LWC mission continues,” says LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. “The ‘All-In’ campaign is a time of fellowship and fun. For two days each year, we loosen our ties and get down to business. It’s a campus-wide effort and we enjoy every minute working alongside our students.”  

The challenge for this year’s campaign is to receive 2,500 gifts over the span of two days.   

“We want to honor everyone who helped LWC make it through this difficult year,” said Luckey. “Many of you could have turned away from our beloved college on the hill, but instead you stood steadfast and lifted us up during what may have been the most challenging year in our 118-year history. Thank you students, faculty, staff, community and friends for staying by our side."

The fall 2021 campaign is structured so that students will immediately benefit from the financial support. By going to, donors may give their gift directly to more than 30 affinity programs. For example, if you are a former baseball player, cheerleader, band member, or if you have a love for theatre, you can designate your gift to go to your favorite program, team, club or group. 

“It has been my privilege to be associated with the All-In for LWC, Chair’s Challenge for the last seven years,” said board chair, Dr. Allan Parnell. “We are hoping for a better world beyond COVID, with this in mind, I want to personally encourage the LWC family to take part in this exciting new initiative -- 2,500 gifts in 48 hours and help us do even more for Lindsey Wilson students.”
