Lynchburg is grateful for the support received each year from our donors. Donors are recognized and honored in our Honor Roll of Contributors for their contributions (including matching gifts) during the most recent fiscal year (July 1-June 30).
In 1903, Dr. Josephus Hopwood fulfilled a dream of establishing a college at which young men and women, through spiritual and intellectual development, would prepare for meaningful lives of leadership in their communities. To honor the accomplishments of Josephus and Sarah Hopwood and the many others who assisted them, the 1903 Society recognizes alumni, parents, and friends who, through their annual support of $1,000 or more, uphold the University of Lynchburg and its students.
Unrestricted annual support of the University is critical to our success. The Dell Society recognizes those donors who have made a gift of at least $5 to the Lynchburg Fund (formerly the Annual Fund) for three consecutive years, including the current fiscal year. The University of Lynchburg’s fiscal year is July 1 – June 30.
Established in 2018 and named in honor of those who founded this institution, the Founders Society recognizes those donors with lifetime giving of at least $100,000. Within the Founders Society are four distinct levels of giving, named for the four founders listed in A Beacon Through the Years: A History of Lynchburg College 1903-2003.
Formerly known as the Heritage Society, the Hopwood Society recognizes those donors who have chosen to create their own legacy at the University of Lynchburg by including the school in their estate plans. Named for Dr. Hopwood, this society is comprised of those who believe in his vision of a strong future for this institution.
Through our intercollegiate athletic programs and club sports, Lynchburg Athletics enhances the student experience and gives our talented athletes the tools they need to succeed on the field and in the classroom. That success is made possible through their commitment and dedication, the leadership provided by our outstanding coaching staff, and the private support of our alumni, parents, and friends. Lynchburg has a long and proud tradition of athletic excellence, and your support makes it all possible. Every gift matters.
The Hive is a way to support Lynchburg Athletics. When you give $25 or more to any Lynchburg Athletics fund or team, you will officially become a member of The Hive. As a member, not only will your gift make the difference for our Hornets, but you will also enjoy exclusive membership benefits.
