The consequences of the pandemic have spared no region, industry, or educational institution—including Grand Valley State University and our students. 

In anticipation of increased need, growing the Student Support Fund is a priority. Your gift today to the Student Support Fund provides flexible, immediate-use resources for emergency financial assistance. All gifts will directly benefit those students who experience unexpected financial or personal hardship as quickly as needs are identified.

Your Gift Matters!

“Without the gift, I don’t know what I would have done. The money given to me went directly to pay for my classes. Now I can stay on course to graduate,” she said. “I am beyond grateful that someone who I don’t even know would give a gift to me like this one.”
