More Than a Campaign

“At Taylor University, we know who we are, and we boldly proclaim that Christ is the center of everything we do, and it’s drawing record levels of interest. Life to the Full is more than an ambitious campaign; the Board of Trustees and I view this as a calling from God to make room for more mission-aligned students.”

D. Michael Lindsay, Ph.D.
Taylor University President and Professor of Sociology

Life to the Full: The Campaign for Taylor, represents the largest fundraising effort in Taylor’s 178-year history and one of the largest fundraising initiatives ever for a Christian college. We are thankful for the generosity of so many during the leadership phase of the campaign which began in 2022. As a result, the University has already raised $275 million towards the $500 million goal. Now we invite alumni, parents, and friends to join this campaign that will have a generational impact on Taylor and the Kingdom of God around the world.
