The Lamar Institute of Technology is grateful for the generosity of our benefactors including alumni and friends, whose philanthropy fosters the continued success of the college and impacts the growth of our state, region and nation.  Without the support of these donors, Lamar Institute of Technology could not achieve the merits and accolades for which it is known.

The role of the Office of Development at the Lamar Institute of Technology is to provide recognition and thanks to our donors for their philanthropic spirit and support of higher education and to keep them informed about the use and growth of their gifts.  A special scholarship banquet and special fundraising events are held that enhance the quality of life, encourage success, and positively change not only the futures of LIT students and their families, but the entire community as a whole.
