The 1827 Society

As a regional leader in higher education, Lindenwood University relies on gifts from 1827 Society members to provide essential support for all aspects of life on campus. Your gifts make Lindenwood more accessible through financial aid, allow the University to attract and retain faculty, and ensure we’re able to respond as unexpected needs arise.
