Building Toward the Future
Lamar University's margin of excellence is enhanced with every gift we receive. The motivations of our alumni and friends are as varied as the programs and colleges their gifts support. While unrestricted gifts allow LU the greatest flexibility to allocate funds where they are most needed, you may designate your gift to specific schools, colleges, scholarships, professorships, or academic programs within the University.
Several gift options can assist you in meeting personal financial goals. Careful planning can help you maximize the positive effects of your outright contributions such as cash, appreciated securities, life insurance policies, real estate and gifts of personal property, as well as deferred gifts such as bequests, testamentary trusts and life income trusts.
We welcome your questions about charitable contributions. In addition to our assistance, we recommend that you consult with your attorney or accountant for legal and tax advice on any charitable gift.
Most gifts to Lamar University are made through the Lamar University Foundation. To find out all the options for giving to Lamar, please click on the Foundation link for more information.
