Honoring Tradition

A Campaign to Restore the Tower

When Logan University relocated to the Chesterfield campus, Logan adopted the grounds, facilities and structures, including the iconic Tower. Over the years, the Tower has become synonymous with Logan.

The Tower, showing signs of more than 50 years of wear and tear, is in need of restoration to allow it to remain the stately, visible symbol of Logan’s campus. Logan University believes that making the Tower a priority today is cost-effective and will ensure its presence for generations to come.

The Honoring Tradition Campaign seeks to raise $400,000 to restore and beautify the Tower. Restoration work is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2017.

For any commitment to the Honoring Tradition Campaign at or above the $1,000 level, Logan will share a bell marked with the campaign emblem to acknowledge the gift. Donors committing $2,500 or more will be offered the opportunity to personalize the bell.

For those wishing to make a larger impact on the success of this Campaign, Logan offers Leadership Giving Opportunities:

Dedicated Naming Opportunity: $150,000
Masonry Wall at Base: $100,000
Brass Bell: $25,000 (three opportunities available)
Lighting the Tower: $15,000 (four opportunities available)

All donors to the Honoring Tradition Campaign will be recognized on the commemorative plaque at the base of the Tower.
