Giving to LCOE
Why Give to the Lyles College of Engineering?
Private Giving enables us to go beyond what can be accomplished by just state funding alone. The University is proud to fulfill its responsibility to the State of California and grateful for the backbone of public funding that makes its mission possible. State funds provide solid educational opportunities for our campus and help to maintain our programs. However, private support is needed to enrich our programs and provide the margin of excellence that allows us to attract the students who truly desire to become the Engineers and Construction Managers of tomorrow.
Generous donations from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations, and friends are providing a lasting legacy of support positively impacting the lives of students and faculty alike.
Double the Effect of Your Gift
In August 2008, Dr. William Lyles and the Lyles Family and their Companies made a transformational Commitment to the College of Engineering. The donors built in a matching opportunity to encourage others to participate in transforming the College. For each new monetary commitment, the corresponding amount of the Lyles Gift willbe applied to a related purpose, doubling the effect of each additional donor's gift.
We invite you to join the many others who are already supporting the Lyles College of Engineering.
