Annual Fund

The annual giving program at SPSU addresses the needs that go to the heart of the Southern Poly experience. Annual gifts support every area of education from libraries to labs; from student life to capital improvements; and from faculty development to financial aid. This support enables SPSU students to reach their potential in their chosen fields of study.

Most annual gifts go to support current expenses and help narrow the gap between actual operating cost and what each student pays in tuition. Without this support, higher education might be out of reach for many outstanding students.

We rely on the support of alumni and friends to provide the best possible programs for our students. Every student benefits from these programs, so in a real sense, every Southern Poly student receives financial aid from our generous alumni.

From scholarships to buildings, books to lab equipment, Annual Giving is enhancing the Southern Poly experience for all students.

When you make your gift today, you help:

Enhance our reputation--National publications, such as U.S. News & World Report, consider alumni participation rates when compiling national rankings of all universities.

Signify quality--When foundations and corporations award grants, alumni participation is an indicator of the quality of the institution.

Generate camaraderie--Each gift to SPSU strengthens the ties between alumni and current students.

Enrich the Southern Poly experience--Every gift, regardless of size, combines to make an immeasurable impact on the academic distinction and opportunity at SPSU.

Your gift today makes a difference in the future of Southern Poly.
