WHY GIVE

Create. Inspire. Enlighten.

When you make a gift to Saginaw Valley State University, you

  • create opportunity for thousands of students looking to make a better life for themselves and for others
  • inspire students to broaden their minds, expand their horizons, and challenge themselves to exceed their potential
  • enlighten the region through professional, artistic, cultural, and personal development programs and events

Make a Gift. Make a Difference.

Your support makes a real difference in the lives of our students and in our community.

In the 2011-2012 academic year, over $1 million in support from private donations was awarded to hundreds of students.

When you contribute to SVSU, 100 percent of your gift goes toward its intended purpose, ensuring maximum impact.

Maximize your gift. Your company may make a matching gift contribution. Contact your human resources department to inquire. Matching gifts are included when calculating the gift club level for the donor.
