Fort Lewis College Foundation

About the Fort Lewis College Foundation

The Fort Lewis College Foundation is a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization that supports Fort Lewis College by enriching educational and cultural opportunities through encouraging and stewarding gifts for scholarships, programs, and facilities - wise investments in the leaders of tomorrow.

The Foundation began in 1969 with an $18,700 gift from Mrs. T. Chase McPherson. Today, its total assets are over $20 million. The foundation uses these funds to provide student scholarships and other programs that contribute to the academic and cultural enrichment of the campus and its students.

Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Hall

Rendering of new GPE hall

The construction of a new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering (GPE) Hall on campus is Fort Lewis College’s top facility priority. While many Fort Lewis College students learn and study in excellent facilities and learning environments, some do not. Students in the geosciences, physics, and engineering programs take the majority of their courses in a woefully outdated wing of Berndt Hall. 

The estimated construction cost for the new Geosciences, Physics and Engineering Hall is $35 million. This project is also a funding priority for the state of Colorado, but private fundraising will still be necessary to raise the full amount.
