Lipscomb Associates

Lipscomb Associates commit to the long-term support of Lipscomb by making annual contributions of $1,000 or more. Their gifts enable us to continue delivering high-quality, high-touch Christian education as only Lipscomb can. Associates allow us to expand our academic programs, the diversity of our student body, and the services and resources we offer, on campus and off. By funding presidential plans and new initiatives, they help us move toward the future with a wider reach and bigger reputation. Register to find out more and become an Associate here.

A.M. Burton Society

Burton Society is granted to those who make revocable or irrevocable planned gifts (such as bequests, trusts, or annuities) to the University or Campus School, or who establish a named endowment of $25,000 or more.

Associated Women for Lipscomb

The Associated Women for Lipscomb formed in 1982, when Willard Collins, then university president, hosted a luncheon for 20 women and challenged them to form an organization to advance excellence in education at Lipscomb. And so they did—now AWL members across the country raise scholarship funds for those who will enliven our campus and diversify our community. To find out how to become an AWL member, please go here.
