You Did It!

You Did It!

2014 Chair's Challenge -- 2012 Spring Commencement

President Luckey sent the following email at 8:43 a.m. CT Oct. 23, 2014, to the LWC community:

Thank you!

The "Chair's Challenge" officially ended at midnight CT.

We expect a few more gifts to arrive in this morning's mail. But I want to let you know that during the "Chair's Challenge" 612 gifts worth a total of $95,074 were made to support Lindsey Wilson College scholarships.

When I shared the results this morning with Board Chair Allan Parnell, he responded by giving an extra $100 for each gift beyond 500!

Combined with Allan's $61,000 gift, a total of $156,074 has been raised so far for LWC scholarships.

Lindsey Wilson students are blessed to have family members, alumni and friends who support their dreams and ambitions.

Thank you for everything you do to help change our students' lives.

-- William T. Luckey Jr.,
President

Final Update from President Luckey: Posted 12:41 p.m. CT Wednesday, Oct. 22.

Above and beyond.

I should have known that Lindsey Wilson College alumni, parents and friends would go above and beyond the call of duty when they were challenged to help LWC students.

With less than 12 hours left in the "Chair's Challenge," I am happy to report that we have raised more than $52,000 from 450 donors!

When I shared the good news earlier this morning with Board Chair Allan Parnell, he issued one final challenge: he will give $50,000 to support LWC scholarships if 500 donors make a gift by midnight CT tonight.

If you've already made your gift to the "Chair's Challenge," thank you for being part of this incredible event.If you haven't made a gift yet, there's still time to help us us raise $50,000 more in scholarship support for LWC students.

Thank you!

-- William T. Luckey Jr.,
President

  Wow!

That was Allan Parnell's reaction when I informed him a little past 10 a.m. CT today that the "Chair's Challenge" had eclipsed the 200-donor mark in less than 11 hours.

He was so excited that he laid out another challenge: $35,000 if 350 donors give during the 48-hour period that ends midnight Wednesday.

I can't tell you how thankful I am to you if you've already made your gift to the "Chair's Challenge."

If you haven't made a gift yet, there's still time to help us us raise $35,000 in scholarship support for LWC students.

LWC Board of Trustees Chair Allan Parnell challenges LWC alumni, parents and friends to show their love for LWC students.

If 250 LWC donors make gifts during a 48-hour period from Oct. 21-22, Mr. Parnell will donate $25,000 to LWC to be used for scholarship aid for students.

If you have already made a gift this year, a gift on Oct. 21-22 will help meet this $25,000 challenge. And if you haven't given yet, this is the best time to help LWC students!

How you can help LWC students:

  • Click here to make a gift online between Oct. 21-22.
  • Call the LWC Alumni office from 7 a.m.-9 p.m. CT on Oct. 21-22 at 270-384-8400 -- or  answer the call when an LWC student calls you!

Questions? Contact us at alumni@lindsey.edu or 270-384-8400.

Thank you for helping us meet the Chair's Challenge so that we can change more LWC students' lives!
