Thank you for considering a gift to the College of Communication and Fine Arts. Our faculty and staff strive to recruit exceptional students, enrich their learning opportunities, and take full advantage of our ideal location, enabling us to continue a long tradition of serving the larger community with intelligence, compassion, creativity and insight.

The College of Communication and Fine Arts actively seeks support at all levels, including:

Support from an engaged network of individuals enables our ambitious and targeted goals to be realized in new spaces of performance, instruction of exploration, and preparation for the creative careers of tomorrow. Individual support through annual, major, and planned gifts is an investment in the future of CFA: preparing our students to be servant leaders, innovative developers, and the communicators and creators of new forward-thinking ideas in arts fields. All to bring a more vibrant future to our world.

Support from foundations, corporations, and non-profits enables our college to do more and do it immediately. With nimbleness and imagination, CFA continues to impact our community through communication as art and art as communication. Our partners in these areas widen our reach, expand our breath, and allow us to fine-tune our strengths with precision and focus on the world of arts, communication and performance. We seek new partners while gratefully delivering on our plans with current partners.

The world of arts, theater, dance, and communication is, and always has been, reliant on networks. Through our networks of industry partners, our students and faculty have access to meaningful and transformational experiences during their tenure at LMU, then later as they affect in the world. We are always looking to strengthen and expand our partnership with experts in the field and welcome opportunities to engage in conversations throughout the year. The Lions we teach go on to be the leaders of the future and we know that it takes a village to reinforce this pipeline – with diversity, talent, and magis front and center.

CFA aims to be the destination of choice for students and faculty from richly diverse backgrounds who want to use their talents to make a lasting impact on the world around them. More broadly, we are a community of alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and students who partner together to innovate, create, and improve our future through communication, art, and performance.
