LCU Foundation


The LCU Foundation directs strategic initiatives to enhance and facilitate Lubbock Christian University in fulfilling its mission as a Christ-centered, academic community of learners, transforming the hearts, minds, and hands of students for lives of purpose and service.

Ways to Give

Whether it is through a cash gift, planned gift, a gift in kind, or one of the other many types of gifts listed below, your involvement shows a powerful commitment to the mission and values of Lubbock Christian University.

Cash Gifts

Cash gifts are the most common, and the easiest, way to donate. You can make a one-time gift or a recurring gift on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis. You can even give now.


Pledging an amount now and spreading payments over time allows you to make a more generous gift. We can accept pledges for gifts to be made over a period of three years or longer.


You can make a gift of appreciated marketable securities, including stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, by transferring these assets to the Lubbock Christian University Foundation.

Real Estate

Real estate can be a valuable gift to LCU. We can advise you and assist you in giving residences, farms, commercial buildings, land parcels or other types of property to the university.

Planned Gifts

Make a long-term contribution to LCU that involves your life insurance policy, estate plan, charitable gift annuity or other planned gift. We can help you arrange and process your planned gift.

Gifts in Kind

Gifts of tangible personal property, such as art, antiques, various collectibles, and many other items can also benefit LCU.

Endowed Gifts

Through an endowed gift, you can help LCU lay the groundwork for continued success as a competitive university. Your investment in LCU can be used to support a program, scholarship, or faculty chair position. These gifts typically bear the donor’s name, celebrating your commitment to and support of LCU.

Gifts in Memory/in Honor

Many donors establish gifts to honor a loved one or special mentor, professor or friend. These unique gifts not only provide essential support for the university, but also ensure that the honoree’s legacy will endure forever at LCU.

Corporate Matching

Many businesses generously match all or part of their employees’ charitable contributions. We can assist you in finding out what your employer’s policy is and in handling the transaction.
