Ways To Give



  • The LeTourneau Fund
  • Legacy Giving
  • Coffee Club
  • Endowed Scholarships
  • Matching Gifts
  • Creative Giving

The LeTourneau Fund is a critical part of every academic year at LeTourneau University.  Gifts made in an unrestricted manner allow the University the flexibility to invest in a variety of critical ways throughout the campus during a given year.  Some of these meaningful efforts include student scholarships or financial aid (providing needed financial assistance for more than 90% of our students), campus improvements, new program development and/or implementation, recruiting and retention efforts and spiritual development to name a few. The LeTourneau Fund is not a “keep the lights on” program, it is a purposeful initiative that creates opportunities for a vibrant LeTourneau experience.

 By contributing to the LeTourneau Fund, no matter the size of your gift, your are supporting LeTourneau University's Christ-centered, hands-on education.  Two special giving levels are available to you to support the LeTourneau Fund: the 1946 Society (annual gifts of $250 or more) and the President's Circle (annual giving of $1,000 or more).

Estate and Legacy Planning and the Giving that Can Arise from That – Does it Really Matter?

Think about this: early in the life of Israel we see the Lord repeatedly reminding them about the importance of passing on to “their children and their children’s children” God’s testimony of faithfulness (Deuteronomy 4:9 and following).  God went on to tell the children of Israel that He wasn't’t talking directly with their children, but rather with them – because “their eyes had seen” all that the Lord had done (Deuteronomy 11:2-7). 

Estate planning, when done with intentionality and by including a narrative of one’s life, can be an incredible means of motivating future generations.  Further empowering such planning with tax wise strategies that endow heirs as well as those ministries that have had an impact upon you and your family assures there is a means by which that consistent behavior is facilitated! That is what legacy giving is all about - giving that empowers your legacy and helps pave the way to obedience for future generations.

Assisting you and your family with such effective, intentional estate and legacy planning is what our new LeTourneau University Foundation is all about.  For professional advice from a seasoned team of advisor, visit the Foundation website (letufoundation.org) to learn more.  If you have any questions or to contact us directly email us at legacyplan@letu.edu or call us toll-free at 903-500-2972 and ask for Tom Bevan.

And always a proper disclaimer: When considering what we might point to by way of a benefit to you in any given situation, always assure to consult your legal and tax advisor for what qualifies as the actual tax treatment of that scenario in your unique situation.

LeTourneau University is always striving to keep alumni up to date with what is happening at LETU. The Coffee Club is a new way for you to do just that. When you sign up, you will get a handmade mug made by one of our LeTourneau students, Lisa Tixier, from TheWireFlower. You will also receive a ground coffee sample from Silver Grizzly Espresso owned by a LeTourneau Alum, and a weekly student profile that tells a little of who they are and how you can pray for them.

To sign up today, just select Coffee Club under the drop down and start your connection with a student! It is a minimum of either $10 dollars a month, or a one-time gift of $120 for the year. Like always these funds will go straight to students, to help more students be financially able to attend this great university.

Scholarships play a major role in the lives of LETU students. More than 90% of the student body receives financial assistance from scholarships, grants, and loans. But with graduating seniors incurring significant financial debt, it is our goal to lessen the burden and increase our scholarship aid. Endowed scholarships play a vital role in decreasing the debt burden on students.

Why do LETU alumni and friends choose to establish Endowed Scholarship Funds?

  • To perpetuate the memory or legacy of a loved one;
  • To honor positive role models who have significantly influenced others;
  • To invest in today's students who will influence every workplace and every nation for Christ tomorrow.

Endowed Scholarships provide significant impact:

  • Equip leaders for tomorrow today;
  • Recruit and retain outstanding students seeking the hands-on, Christ-centered education that has for decades been the strength of LETU;
  • Recognize and reward outstanding performance by students with demonstrated financial need.

Endowed professorships, chairs, programs and schools are also available. Call 903.233.3833 or email Tom Bevan to establish your endowment today.

Many companies will match their employees' charitable gifts. Some will even match the donations of retirees or employees' spouses! You can make your money double or even triple and at the same time invest in students' lives.

See if your employer matches employee donations

If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer's Human Resources department. Complete, sign and send in the completed form with your gift- every time you give a gift! Inform your employer of your donation and give them LeTourneau University's mailing address (2100 S. Mobberly Ave. Longview, TX 75607) so they can make the match. We will do the rest.

These are just a few of the companies that support matching gifts, click above for details and to find more companies.
