Lourdes Society members are part of a leadership group invested in continuing Lourdes tradition of being a premier institution delivering life-changing experiences. Members know the value Lourdes offers students through a personalized and hands-on education. Such value is exponentially grown when Lourdes students enter into our communities and workforces. Our graduates’ professionalism, ethical decision-making, and overall compassion for all are showcased in the community by their work as nurses, teachers, financial advisors, and more.
Lourdes is one of the only Franciscan and private institutions within our region. Lourdes Society members’ investments at the University assist the institution in maintaining its operational excellence while also expanding its ability to be innovative. This is accomplished through annual commitments by Lourdes Society members at the $1,000 level or more. These investments may be designated to any area of special interest or given to the area of greatest need.

“As I start my fifth semester here at Lourdes, I’m so excited for my classes and this opportunity to grow and learn. I always wanted to advance in life, but I did not always have the means and resources to do so. More than that I just didn’t have anyone in my corner until I came to Lourdes.
Thank you for your gifts, thank you for your belief, thank you for your love and support, and most importantly thank you for helping me and the students at Lourdes University.”
