Ways to give to LPI

You are a Changemaker!

Your support means crucial change for many students.

Thank you!

Make a Donation
Without the commitment of donors, there can be no change for children. Your contribution is part of the solution. Thank you!

Where Your Money Goes?

Imagine yourself giving a dollar to LPI— not a bill, but 100 pennies. The person accepting the money would count out twenty cents and set that aside. On average, the remaining 80 cents of every dollar we spend is invested in services and  care to our students. This is only possible through the generosity of donors like you.

Lydia Patterson Institute is a faith-based nonprofit education institution, owned by the United Methodist Church.  Since 1913, we have granted millions of dollars to educate thousands and of children in our USA-México border. This could not be possible without members like you.

Thank you for your generous donation, we are thrilled that you have chosen to be a part of the LPI community
