Grand Valley Fund

Many paths, same destination.

In addition to campaign gifts for specific projects, many donors choose to give annually to a general fund that supports the highest priorities for students on an annual basis. The Grand Valley Fund is one of those annual funds.

Your unrestricted gift to the Grand Valley Fund goes where it is needed most each year and directly supports students. Collectively, all gifts of any size to the Grand Valley Fund allow more students access to the academic excellence that defines the Grand Valley experience.

  • Financial Assistance
    As requests for assistance continue to grow, the Grand Valley Fund plays an increasingly important role in support for need-based scholarships. A large portion of the Grand Valley Fund helps make it possible for Grand Valley students to receive financial support.
  • Internship Assistance
    Research shows that students who participate in internships are more likely to get a job related to their field of study after graduation. The Grand Valley Fund supports students' growing demand for internships. Funding is needed to expand outreach to organizations that can provide Grand Valley students with these experiential educational opportunities.
  • Technology and Equipment
    As technology continues to evolve, the university has an ongoing need for the latest equipment to be sure our graduates are trained in the most up-to-date technologies.
  • And more...
    The Grand Valley Fund helps meet student needs in any given year as they arise. It is the most flexible fund available for student support.
