Faculty/Staff Giving

What is the Lewis Faculty & Staff Giving Campaign?   

Thanks to our faculty and staff, the We Believe! Campaign has grown significantly over the past five years. The primary goal of the We Believe! effort is participation and gifts of any size are received with abundant gratitude. Our participation in philanthropy to Lewis sends a powerful message to our alumni, parents, and students. No matter what you decide about participation in the We Believe! Campaign, first and foremost we are grateful that you choose Lewis as your workplace. We appreciate that every day you share your gifts and talents with our students and the Lewis community.        

Due to the State of Illinois’ budget impasse and the lack of MAP grant funding this year, the college futures of nearly 1,400 Lewis students hang in the balance.  Therefore, this year we ask that you please consider supporting the Lewis Mission Fund.  This fund will be used to help students who have emergent need due to MAP grant issues or other financial hardship.

Why Give? 

Your gift is an opportunity to:

  • Show your commitment to the Lewis Mission, especially the values of association and service, and grow the dramatic impact that the Lewis Mission has in the lives of students on campus and in our community;
  • Become a part of the solution to the challenges that many of our students experience;
  • Enjoy the satisfaction of making an even greater difference in the lives of our students.

A gift designated to Lewis’ area of greatest opportunity makes the largest impact. You can also choose to support the area that is most important to you such as scholarships, student organizations, or the Lewis Mission Fund. 

Either way, your gift will make a difference!
