Many alumni and friends make a major investment in the University through recurring monthly gifts. Pledging over a three to five year period may allow you to give more than is possible with a one-time cash gift. If you would like to set up a monthly gift plan, please contact Penny Marr, assistant director of stewardship services, at (417) 328-1802 or pmarr@SBUniv.edu.
Your gift can double or triple if your company has a matching gift program. Find out here if your company participates in matching gifts to enhance the impact your gift has on the lives of SBU students.
The Annual Scholarship Fund is made up of many unrestricted gifts from Southwest Baptist University’s loyal alumni, friends, students, parents, faculty and staff. When you give to the Annual Scholarship Fund you are investing in the lives of SBU students. Your gift is more than an investment into students’ academic endeavors - it is a statement that you believe in them and in the Christ-centered future to which God has called them.
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about your support of the Annual Scholarship Fund. Please contact Jim Grabowski (417-328-1807 or jgrabowski@SBUniv.edu) or Theresa Daniels (417-328-1835 or tdaniels@SBUniv.edu).
You can be a part of SBU’s mission by choosing from a variety of planned giving options. Many tools are available for donors to use to benefit their financial position while making a gift to impact the lives of SBU students. For gifts such as funding a scholarship, investing in SBU’s endowment, gifting of appreciated securities or real estate, or naming SBU in a will, the University Relations staff takes time to consult with donors so that their gifts are managed with care.
Friends and alumni of SBU who would like more information about gift and estate planning opportunities may contact Dr. Brad Johnson, vice president for university relations, at (417) 328-1805 or bjohnson@SBUniv.edu.
