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.

The new Geosciences, Physics & Engineering Hall will host state-of-the-sciences research spaces for three of Fort Lewis College’s most dynamic and popular programs. Slated to open in Fall 2016, the $35-million addition to campus represents decade-long efforts by FLC officials, faculty, and area legislators, backed by generous donors and supporters.

In GPE Hall, FLC's undergraduate researchers will have access to top-quality laboratories and electronics equipment, field tools, optical technologies, and specialized testing and research facilities. A rooftop research observatory will also offer the Durango community a chance to share the exploration of our region's clear dark skies.
