The President's Circle

Message from the President

Members of Lindenwood University’s President’s Circle are some of our most committed and loyal supporters, and we are grateful for their generous support of the Annual Fund. Members of the President’s Circle help provide on-going investment into new academic programs, strengthening faculty development, improving campus facilities, and offering additional financial support to students through scholarships and student programs. Members are planting the seeds of generosity, which will nourish growth at Lindenwood University.

Our loyal donors have seen the benefit and value of Lindenwood University. By making a gift at a President’s Circle level, you have the chance to make a difference in the lives of students who will proudly carry on our tradition for generations to come while gaining access to Lindenwood’s network of alumni and friends.

What is the President's Circle?

It’s your chance to give back to the university you’re proud to be a part of. While many friends and alumni share gifts with the university that have a lasting impact on our institution, the President’s Circle is for supporters who seek to be involved on a regular basis, making an annual commitment to Lindenwood University through generous gifts of at least $1,000 each year.

Through your consistent support, we are able to provide students with an unmatched opportunity to pursue their dreams. The President’s Circle seeks to extend the reach and capabilities of our university, solidifying our place as one of the Midwest’s premiere independent universities.

Many of our members have made significant contributions throughout the years to programs, projects, scholarships, and special campaigns. This generosity is reflected in the vibrancy of our campuses and regional educational centers. Contributions to the President’s Circle allow the university to continue its mission and meet annual costs to advance academic programs, strengthen faculty development, and improve our campuses.

Additionally, with your generous donation, you have the ability to decide specifically where and how your money is utilized. If there are certain areas of Lindenwood academia that have left a lasting impact on your life, or that hold a special place in your heart, you are free to return the favor in kind to help those students flourish, both in and out of the classroom environment.
