The Whitakers

Robert and Faye Whitaker sent all four of their daughters to Lubbock Christian University. Although it's been more than 20 years since their children were students, Robert and Faye's relationship with the university is ongoing.

By providing LCU with a generous charitable-gift annuity, the Whitakers ensured their legacy will continue well into the future. They also reinforced their commitment to Christian education.

"I know what it means to educate people through the Bible," Robert said. "You can't give anything better than a Christian education to your children."

During the "Changing Lives forever..." 50th anniversary campaign, the Whitakers chose to support LCU through planned giving, a giving option that allows for a lifetime of charitable giving with current and future tax benefits. They chose to set up a gift annuity, an agreement where donors give a cash or property gift and receive a fixed payment in return. A gift annuity is one of many planned-giving options available.

"What impresses me most about the Whitakers is that they are people who have been blessed by God and have chosen to give back to LCU and others," said Dr. L. Ken Jones, LCU president.

The Whitaker's dedication to LCU and Christian education is one of the many reasons LCU appreciates their friendship. Donors like the Whitakers enable the university to provide student scholarships, fund academic programs, and bring top-tier faculty to our campus.
