Reasons to Give

Reason #1
Give because participation is what counts. A gift of any amount helps makes a difference and helps elevate SHU’s rankings in publications like US New and World Report, raising the value of your degree.

Reason #2
Give because 9 out of every 10 SHU students receive some sort of financial aid. The University awards over $37 million of its own funds to SHU students.

Reason #3
Give because you can choose! Support the area of the SHU Community that is the most meaningful to you. 100% of your gift to SHU goes directly to the allocation of your choice. You can support any of the following:

  • The Fund for Excellence (supports scholarship, financial aid, student programs and services - pretty much everything YOU experience)
  • College of Arts & Sciences
  • Colleges of Business
  • College of Health Professions
  • College of Education
  • University College
  • Ryan Matura Library
  • Any of the 32 Division I athletic teams
  • General Athletic Support (Pioneer Club)

Reason #4
Give because you want to give back. You can give back to the place that has given you so much and has made your college experience one of a kind.

A gift of ANY size helps! And to make things easier for you, you can set up a recurring gift to make your gift in small increments!‌
