Give to Louisburg
Related by faith to The United Methodist Church, Louisburg College is committed to offering a supportive community which nurtures young men and women intellectually, culturally, socially, physically and spiritually.
To that end, every gift made to Louisburg College goes directly towards fulfilling that mission. Your gifts help us hire and retain devoted and accomplished faculty, maintain a dedicated honors program that teaches our students leadership and communications skills, support over 30 organizations on campus and continue to cultivate an athletic program that is nationally recognized.
Louisburg, the only two-year residential college in North Carolina, is able to provide these opportunities for students so that they are able compete at senior colleges and universities, in the workforce and for the rest of their lives.
Below are some of the ways you can partner with us to help fulfill our mission:
Your gift helps the College to attract and retain devoted and accomplished faculty, support our academic programs and organizations, maintain our historic campus and much more. Giving to the Louisburg Fund allows the College to designate your gift where it is needed most. Gifts to the Louisburg Fund greatly impact students, faculty and staff at Louisburg College by providing funds for every facet of daily life.
Your gift helps provide financial aid to Louisburg College students, enabling them to continue their education. Giving to student scholarships makes a direct impact on our students. The Lettie Pate Whitehead Foundation is one of our largest donors, with their gifts cumulating to over $2.4 million. This has enabled countless students to attend Louisburg College who would not be able to otherwise.
Your gift towards one of our incredible programs allows our students more opportunities and resources. Our programs include, but are not limited to, honor societies, Learning Partners and student-led clubs. One of Louisburg College’s premier programs is the Roger G. and Gaile T. Taylor Honors Program. The program offers enhanced learning and travel opportunities, as well as additional scholarship funding, to students who demonstrate a high level of interest, initiative, and ability.
Your gift towards out athletic program ensures that our student-athletes have the equipment, coaches and safety gear that they need to perform at their best. Louisburg College has a long tradition of excellence in athletic competition. Our graduates are consistently sought by senior institutions, and some athletes have moved successfully into professional sports leagues.
Your gift to a capital project goes towards maintaining and improving our historic campus. Gifts from alumni and friends helped to replace the aging roof on the Tar River Center for History and Culture. The Tar River Center for History and Culture promotes a sense of community and shared history by helping citizens of all ages and backgrounds to explore the rich architecture, culture and history of the Upper Tar River region of North Carolina.
Your gift to an endowment is invested in order to grow and support the College in perpetuity. Alumnus John Edwards and his wife, Mattie, established an endowment to help Louisburg College students pursuing a career in Christian education through music. Although the couple is now deceased, their gift will continue to support students for many years to come.
