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' needs.


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.

Current Objectives
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 million;
  • build a performing arts center to meet the region's cultural needs;
  • 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 space;
  • 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 later;
  • build the 42,000-square-foot Jim and Helen Lee Fugitte Science Center;
  • and build the Lindsey Wilson Sports Park, home of LWC baseball, football, softball, and track and field.
