LU Send Now

LU Send Faculty Gateway Rome

Would you like to contribute to help fund an immediate need?

The ongoing success of Send Now is largely due to the gifts and contributions of those who donate to the initiative. All proceeds go directly to the Send Now initiative and is the reason why we can send students at a moment’s notice. Your financial commitment to Send Now is what makes it possible for students to bring relief and hope to people facing their most desperate hour. 


Be Ready to Serve When There is an Immediate Need

At Liberty, we believe in the incredible power of God to move through us when our state of readiness intersects with someone else’s urgent need. That’s why we’ve created the LU Send Now initiative. LU Send Now is the University's quick response team for urgent disaster relief and humanitarian needs. If you want to be equipped and ready to respond to needs around the world whenever the moment comes, we’d love for you to join our team.
