Employee Giving

Since 1971, employee giving has been a tradition at Liberty University. Faculty and staff have always come together as family to support fellow employees as well as students. In this spirit, the Office of Development is excited to introduce the Employee Giving Campaign. Together we can make a difference and continue this proud tradition.

The Employee Giving Campaign is divided into four main categories of giving:

All employees are encouraged to give at a level with which they feel comfortable and to the fund that means most to them. Our goal is 100% participation, and to make giving easy for employees, the Office of Development has established a payroll deduction system.

It only takes a spark to light the Flame — every dollar you invest will change the lives of students and will carry on our mission of Training Champions for Christ.
