Annual Giving

Annual gifts can be in any amount and go to the fund of your choice each year. Your annual gifts provide ongoing support for students. Support your area of passion, a university priority, or the university’s greatest needs through a gift to the Grand Valley Fund or Laker Family Fund. To assist you with your annual giving and to update your information, students from our Telephone Outreach Program may be calling you.
