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.

Alumni Annual Giving Opportunities

By joining the Loyal Laker program and giving $10 per month to the fund(s) of your choice, you are providing current students what they need to make their mark on the world.

Your gifts create opportunities for students to graduate on time and with less debt, succeed by improving support services, and remain relevant by providing real-world experience.
