We know that choosing where to designate your gift can be time-consuming and full of thought, but we want you to know that no matter which area, program, department, scholarship, or initiative you choose to support, it's the act of giving that means the most.
Not sure where to give? By supporting the key University priorities below, your gift can have a lasting and transforming impact on Longwood's mission: to cultivate citizen leaders who are ready to contribute to the common good. Check out some of our priority support areas below.
The Longwood Fund is one of the hardest-working resources on campus, but it doesn't brag about itself. It works quietly 24/7, 365. But it couldn't do it without you. Your support of the Longwood Fund drives our University forward. You enable us to maintain the momentum that has been building for the past 183 years. Your gift provides unrestricted, flexible funding to address the greatest needs of the University, in turn fueling the ingenuity of students and faculty. Your gift to the Longwood Fund is a demonstration of your belief in this place, in the people who call Longwood home, and in the work we all do together.
College isn't a cheap investment, but at Longwood we believe it is a necessary one. On a national level, some 63% of undergraduates at public, four-year colleges and universities do not have enough funds from family and financial aid, meaning that their access to a quality education is less and less in reach. The need for student scholarships is ever-increasing, and your valuable support makes a difference. To learn more about endowing a scholarship, click here.
As Longwood meets and exceeds the needs of a 21st-century education, we have a number of major programs and areas that are flourishing—engaging more students, raising the University's national profile, and serving more communities. Below are four other priority areas that could uniquely benefit from your philanthropic support:
