Since its birth in 1948, The Lander Foundation has played a major role in the life of Lander University. For 25 years, The Foundation was the policy-making board of the University. When Lander moved from private to state support in 1973, the Lander Foundation was reorganized into an independent, nonprofit organization operating solely to support Lander.
As a public institution, Lander University receives state funds to ensure that its students are provided with a strong, basic education. Lander, however, is committed to offering an education that goes beyond the basics.
Friends of Lander who share that vision are helping provide, through The Lander Foundation, the funding that makes the difference between a very good education and one that is truly excellent.
Making a difference—that is what Lander University and The Lander Foundation are all about.
