The University Development Office handles all gifts, grant requests, donations and estate planning, fund raising, and Alumni and Parent Relations, as well as Student Foundation.
Students and student organizations wishing to raise funds or obtain donated materials must have prior approval from the Office of University Development before soliciting any off-campus individuals or organizations. All solicitations must conform to the Fund Raising Policy listed here and no solicitation of any kind should be made without first consulting with the Office of University Development.
LeTourneau University recognizes the vital importance of charitable contributions received from individuals, churches, foundations, corporations, associations and government entities to the financial health of the institution. All appeals for funds, equipment or supplies must be coordinated through and be approved by the Office of University Development. This will allow the University to present a cohesive fund raising strategy that maximizes the funding of established priorities.
Before any gift (whether cash, in-kind gifts or materials) is received on behalf of the University, the Office of University Development must be notified and will officially receive the gift. All gifts must be reported to the Office of University Development for acknowledgment and appropriate donor recognition. The Vice President for Development will make recommendations to the President on in-kind gifts. To ensure the effective solicitation and receipt of gifts by the Office of University Development, the LeTourneau University Gift Policies and Guidelines on the receipt of gifts apply to all faculty, staff and students.
