Giving Tuesday

Why Give to Lourdes University?

As a private institution, Lourdes University does not receive any of the state funding that is available to public universities and colleges. Rather, we depend upon tuition dollars and the support of private donors from the community.

Lourdes serves men and women in northwest Ohio by providing continuing opportunities for intellectual discovery, accentuating both liberal learning and integrated professional education. Lourdes commits itself to preparing students with the skills and attitudes they need to lead rich and meaningful lives.

For the 13th consecutive year, The Princeton Review – nationally known for its test preparation and admissions services – has included Lourdes among the Best Colleges in the Midwest.

Donor Bill of Rights


Lourdes University is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday, a national movement to encourage and promote philanthropy during the holiday season.

Coinciding with Thanksgiving and the kickoff of the holiday season, #GivingTuesday has inspired people to take action to improve their local communities and give back to their alma maters to help create a better world.

On Tuesday, November 28, as you consider the many worthy organizations to support, we hope you will think of Lourdes University and our continued focus on our mission and values. With focus on the Franciscan values of community, learning, reverence, and service, Lourdes will continue to work to ensure the dignity of individuals and betterment of our world.

Thank you for being a part of our community. We appreciate your continued support!
