Fulfilling Student's Educational Dreams
The Lamar University Foundation supports Lamar University by encouraging the commitment of personal and financial resources from our alumni and friends in order to further the education of students. Your stewardship enhances the quality of services provided to students, faculty, alumni, and friends. And in today’s environment, your continued support is more important than ever.
When you are thinking about what to give it is also important to think about when and how to give. Time spent thoughtfully considering your gifts in light of other financial priorities can allow you to make meaningful contributions while meeting personal planning goals.
Through careful planning, you may also find that you can:
- Give in ways that can actually “give back” for a time, providing extra income in retirement years or help fund educational expenses and other needs.
- Honor a special friend or loved one
- Save money on income, gift, and estate taxes and redirect those amounts for use in ways you choose
- Enjoy giving more, knowing you are investing in Lamar University in ways that allow you to give the most you can at the lowest possible cost.
Read on for a number of ideas on how to support Lamar in the most effective ways possible.
