Help Create a Better Future

This year, nearly 10,000 students enrolled at SVSU. They've come here to seek opportunity. They've come to challenge themselves to become better people, to be inspired, and to inspire others. They've come to SVSU to prepare to make a positive impact in their families, in their communities, in the world.

Without the private support of individuals and organizations, many of these SVSU students would have been unable to shoulder the financial burden of a college education; they would have had to put their dreams on hold.

Your gift to SVSU can mean the difference between deferring a dream and achieving success.
