About

For more than 120 years, donor support has enabled Lees-McRae to be a college of opportunity. Join in that tradition by choosing to #BACKABOBCAT on Giving Day. 

There are many ways donors can assist in our mission to provide powerful educational experiences both in and out of the classroom. Contributions to the Montibus Scholarship Trust go directly to students in the form of scholarships. Contributions to specific areas of campus ensure students have the tools and training they need to compete in a global workforce. We offer students exceptional programs and courses with opportunities they cannot get anywhere else, and with your backing these programs can endure for future Bobcats. A Lees-McRae education firmly rooted in experiential learning should be accessible to all. #BACKABOBCAT on April 8 with a gift to the Montibus Scholarship Trust or another area of interest. Your generosity is part of a long history of community patronage and will serve students as they strive for continued excellence.

Make a gift and then maximize your impact by encouraging support from others. Help us reach our goal of 240 donors in a 24-hour period.
