Ways to Give

Your choice, your way.

There are three primary ways donors give to Grand Valley State University. It is your choice, and all three methods of giving to Grand Valley are critically important for our students and our community.

Annual Gifts

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.

Planned Gifts

Planned giving includes gifts you leave in your will or estate, typically invested in long-term endowments that pay off for generations. There are many ways to give a planned gift – from a simple bequest in your will, to a more specific financial agreement.
