Every dollar counts! Each gift made to The GSU Fund immediately impacts the lives of our students through: 

• Increasing financial aid and scholarship support for deserving students
• Improving library and classroom resources
• Supporting research and academic excellence among our faculty
• Supporting student athletic programs

Donate to a specific program

Donors often choose to designate their gifts for specific programs and funds. Make a restricted gift for a specific purpose such as an endowed scholarship, a specific building project or for general endowment.

Class of 2017

Philanthropy, like many things, begins at home, whether it be one’s childhood home or Governors State University, the home-away-from-home for many of our students. The Class Gift is your chance to give back to the University. Every year alumni and friends make annual gifts to support the University, its students and those opportunities that define the GSU experience. Participation in the Class Gift is your chance to begin our own tradition of giving back, and your opportunity to leave a legacy. Support the 2017 Class Gift.
