“We Want You to Spend All Your Money: Uncle Sam’s Rules and Regulations and the Broader Regulatory Environment”

The market for higher education is cutthroat and ranking amongst the top institutions is no easy task. Financial support and generous gifts are key components to university growth but they do not come without restrictions. In this lecture, President Lindsay outlines the setting for education-specific philanthropic giving and covers the rules of play for financially supporting a private, nonprofit, Christian college.

Cherie Harder

President Lindsay is excited to host Cherie Harder as Taylor’s 2024 Halbrook Speaker. Cherie Harder serves as President of the Trinity Forum. Prior to joining the Trinity Forum in 2008, Ms. Harder served in the White House as Special Assistant to the President and Director of Policy and Projects for First Lady Laura Bush. She holds an Honors B.A. (magna cum laude) in government from Harvard University and a post-graduate diploma in literature from the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, where she was a Rotary Scholar. The Halbrook Freedom Lecture is named for 1967 Taylor alumnus John A. Halbrook. The lecture series was established in response to Halbrook’s vision that every student at Taylor University would gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the freedoms and responsibilities afforded to citizens under the U.S. Constitution, and that they will carry that knowledge and understanding into their workplaces and as thoughtful, engaged citizens, church members, and neighbors in the communities where they and their families live.
