Your Gift Impacts The Student Experience.
Gifts to Shenandoah University create tangible opportunities for our students. Given the economic times we live in, college students’ needs are more urgent than ever before. SU remains committed to using your gift, whatever the size, in the most effective way possible.
Your support of Shenandoah University makes you part of a diverse community of alumni, parents, faculty, staff, current students, individuals and benefactors dedicated to helping Shenandoah provide all of our students with a great education and well-rounded experience.
Through giving, alumni show appreciation for their education, provide current and future students with a great SU experience and stay connected to their SU family. Alumni gifts strengthen the reputation of Shenandoah University, impacting the ability of alumni to obtain employment. A true indicator of SU pride is a willingness to support Shenandoah financially.
Did you know that colleges are ranked based on the number of alumni who donate to their alma mater? Participation matters! A high alumni giving percentage is an endorsement that Shenandoah University is a worthy place to learn and deserving of your financial investment.
All donations add up to make a huge impact! The Shenandoah Fund raises more than $1 million for our students each year. Annual alumni gifts of any amount count towards Shenandoah’s national ranking.
Gifts to The Shenandoah Fund go to work right away to help current students, as they are used in the same fiscal year that they are given to the university.
As a faculty or staff member of Shenandoah University, you are responsible for giving our students the best SU experience possible. Donations from faculty and staff not only provide our students with a great SU experience, but also help the growth of your department. Because of donations, you, and our students, get more of the SU experience.
A high faculty and staff giving percentage is also an endorsement by employees that SU is a worthy place to work and deserving of their financial investment. Faculty and staff participation influences academic rankings and the university’s overall reputation.

At Shenandoah we help our students to become global citizens. That term does not just mean that you have experienced the world and understand other cultures — It means that you are an active participant in the world and see worth in more than just your needs. College isn’t a time when students have extra funds, but it is a time to learn the importance of giving, so in the future you know how important it is. Give what you can to a cause you feel passionate about, then build on your giving over time!
As a Shenandoah University student, you have the opportunity to take advantage of diverse activities on and off campus and receive a quality, well-rounded education. All of this is made possible because of our generous alumni, parent, and student donors like you! Donations bridge the gap between tuition and all that Shenandoah provides.
We are excited to have your family as part of ours. You are a vital part of your student’s successful transition into his or her collegiate experience. Whether manifested by sending a care package, attending their sporting event or performance or motivating them through mid-terms, you will always be the biggest SUpporter of your son or daughter.
Another way to support your child is by making a gift to Shenandoah University. Donations from parents, alumni and friends are vital to enhancing your child’s SU experience. As your child pursues dreams and personal goals at SU, your gift will positively impact the time your child spends here.
Gifts begin working from the moment your student arrives for orientation to the time he or she enrolls in a club, sport, global or career counseling opportunity. Your gift will continue to be beneficial after your student graduates, as the more prestigious the SU experience becomes, the greater the value of your graduate’s degree. In more ways than one, a gift to Shenandoah University is an investment in your student’s future. This is one gift that keeps on giving.
Because of gifts from friends of the university, Shenandoah is enabled to work diligently to strengthen academic programs, build campus infrastructure and implement new and exciting programs and services – all positioned to make a difference in the lives of students and the larger community.
Without our loyal SUpporters, the SU experience would not be what it is today. We are grateful for our community members who partner with us and are part of the Shenandoah family.
