Annual Giving

Moments Matter

Thanks to the deep commitment and generosity of alumni, parents, friends, students, and staff, Longwood is a thriving place rooted in history with a focus on molding and shaping the future citizen leaders of the world. Beyond the physical space, the long-standing and beloved traditions, and the intimate student experience, the people are what make our University community so special. Each year, loyal Lancers build upon that legacy of excellence through annual giving. These gifts are essential to Longwood's mission and the forward momentum we work tirelessly to maintain. Simply put, Longwood is developing leaders and difference-makers and that wouldn't be possible without philanthropic support.

One Gift. Endless Possibilities.

Each and every gift has the ability to make an impact greater than its size. There are hundreds of options for areas you can champion through an annual gift, and we want you to support what means the most to you. Make a gift to Longwood Fund to support the areas of greatest need and student impact, or designate your gift to the school, department, or program of your choosing. Either way, your gift will go to work right away to support today's students.

Participation is key

Equally important to the amount of support our donors give each year, is the number of people who make a difference. Longwood's goal is to increase our undergraduate alumni participation rateā€”the percentage of alumni making a gift in a given fiscal year. While many alumni selflessly support Longwood, less than 10% do so in any given year, and we know that the blue and white spirit is stronger when we all work together.
