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
There are many ways to show that you are a true Laker for a Lifetime by deepening your giving commitment to the university. Choose the option that works best for you.
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.
Alumni Leadership Circle
Members of the Alumni Leadership Circle unlock the potential in our students, our university and our community. As the top 10% of alumni philanthropists, members of the Circle grow donor-funded scholarships, ensure all students have access to the support services they need, and provide real-world, experiential learning opportunities through relevant programs and facilities.
Alumni Champions are members of the Alumni Leadership Circle that take the extra step to increase alumni engagement and philanthropic support for the university. Champions encourage fellow Lakers to play a more active role in support of students.
Student and Parent Giving Opportunities
Being a Laker for a Lifetime starts with giving back to help your fellow students.
Your gift to the Laker Family Fund goes directly to supporting students by increasing the quality of a student’s experience at Grand Valley. This fund ensures students have access to programs and academic resources to help them get started, stay, and succeed at Grand Valley. When you give to this fund, a gift of any size, you make a difference and encourage others to give.
