Throughout my nearly 25 years of service to this great institution, I am reminded of the important role that philanthropy has always played to propel Lane College to heights greater than it ever imagined. From the initial gift of $240 raised by Bishop Isaac Lane that was the basis for the establishment of Lane College, private support has impacted this great institution for 137 years.
The College's strategic plan provides a vision and plan for taking Lane College to greater levels of success. At the heart of it all is a commitment to student success. An investment in Lane College, whether it is for student scholarships, academic program support, intercollegiate athletics, or facilities, will ensure that the College honors its commitment to providing the highest quality education to the young men and women it serves.
Institutional Advancement connects the passion of those who want to support Lane College with the institution's areas of greatest need. Every gift has a direct and immediate impact on our students and programs. I hope you are inspired to contribute to the progress and success of our dynamic college. You are invited to join us as we transform lives, liberate minds and celebrate excellence in Christ.
On behalf of the students, faculty and staff who live and work at Lane College every day, please accept my deepest gratitude for your support.
