About Us: Institutional Advancement

Hannibal-LaGrange University has experienced many decades of educational success because of God's goodness and support from friends like you. In choosing to support Hannibal-LaGrange University, you have joined hands with thousands who, through more than 150 years, have helped provide quality education in a distinctively Christian atmosphere.

Although we receive no state or federal funds, we remain today as one of the most reasonably priced private colleges in America. Yet, while reasonably priced, we are one of the best in providing a quality education. We are able to achieve this priority because people like you choose to support us financially. Your gifts sends a message to others that you believe in our mission and that you are proud of your relationship with the institution.

We are driven only by donations by our alumni and friends, as well as tuition. Institutional Advancement provides for the financial support of the university by securing gifts for the annual fund (operating budget), endowment, and for capital improvements. Because tuition only pays for 69% of the cost of educating a student at Hannibal-LaGrange, the school depends on the generous gifts of alumni, friends, trustees, churches, faculty and staff, corporations, and foundations.

Last fall, HLGU awarded $2,578,000 in institutional scholarships to students in order to make Christian education affordable for them. You can make a difference in the lives of these students by giving to a scholarship fund, to operating expense, to endowment, or to help finance needed campus expansion.

Thanks so much for investing in the lives of our young people.
