Giving Opportunities to Transform Campus

Two recent endeavors at Lander University have transformed the campus and are helping to expand the academic and athletic opportunities available at the university. With numerous giving and naming opportunities available, you can be a part of this exciting transformation.


The Jeff May Complex

Lander’s Recreation, Wellness and Sports Complex

The 25-acre Jeff May Complex, located on Montague Avenue next to the Lander campus, is home to the university’s baseball, softball, soccer and tennis teams. Opened in 2011, the site also features intramural fields and a walking track, serving the recreational and wellness needs of both Lander and the Greenwood community.


The Lander University Equestrian Center

Home of the Therapeutic Riding program at Burton Center and the Lander University Equestrian Team

A bold partnership between Lander University, The Lander Foundation and Burton Center, the 37-acre equestrian center houses a therapeutic riding program for those with disabilities in our community. Located on the Burton Center campus, the equestrian center also offers academic opportunities for students and serves as the home of the Lander Equestrian Team.


General Naming Opportunities

Opportunities abound for benefactors to leave a legacy of caring and commitment to the students who will expand and enrich the empires of their minds at Lander University. One significant opportunity is in the naming of selected buildings, classrooms, laboratories and other areas of campus in honor of individuals or groups. Not only will the names of those so honored live on in perpetuity, but donors will know they have played a significant part in undergirding the good work on this university.
