David Dyches

It is important to give back and providing assistance to deserving students is a great way to facilitate this. I would not have been able to afford college without scholarships and want to make sure today's SUU students have the same opportunity I had a couple years ago.

I give to SUU because I have seen first hand how donor funds help students, that wouldn't otherwise be able to attend college and see their dream of graduating become a reality. It is so rewarding to see how successful these students are years after graduation. To think that my little donation might have been a part of what helps these students succeed, I can't "not" donate.

Philanthropy has always been very important to me, and to give back to the University where I work instills in me a feeling of pride and ownership. We invest in the things that are important to us, and I'm already investing time & energy here, so why not also my gifts? I love working at SUU, and although I'll likely never have my name on a building, I enjoy knowing that my small-but-mighty contributions have helped students achieve their goals.

Robert Eves

I completed my BS degree at SUU at the age of 33, with a wife and three children in tow. Had it not been for departmental scholarships, that process would have taken longer, and may not have been completed. I give because I love SUU, and the way it changes lives. Because SUU helped me, all of my children have graduated from this institution, and some of them are also giving back through donation.

I give because SUU gave so much to me as a student, and now as a staff member! SUU is more than just my alma mater; it's my home!

I truly believe in this institution and its dedication to making each students experience worthwhile. It was a very special place to me as a student and I want to make sure every student has the opportunity to attend!

I support SUU because I think my dollars make a bigger difference here. I contribute to Art and Design scholarships and see the direct result when we are able to help talented students afford school.

Jayson Matlock

I wouldn't have been able to attend SUU without various scholarship opportunities and resources on campus. I give since I believe others should have the same opportunities to achieve their educational goals!

My professors saw more in me than a struggling young father with long-hair. They pushed me to be a better me and as a result I was able to secure a full ride scholarship. I’m In and will always pay it forward because of those professors and the amazing education I received.

Your tireless commitment, energy and work continue to elevate SUU’s reputation and our innovations in learning, student success and experiential education are receiving national recognition.

Another way you can show your support for SUU is to support our culture of giving by making a tax-deductible donation to a scholarship or program that is important to you. I’M IN is our new Faculty-Staff giving program, and we are asking each of you to participate. Making a gift to SUU of any amount to the fund of your choice speaks volumes about the pride you have in our institution and your commitment to its continued success.

Why to Give

Every gift makes a difference! As you declare “I’M IN” you join with hundreds of other University colleagues to make a significant collective impact for our University and our students. And it gives us bragging rights. It’s something corporations and foundations look to when they are determining whether to fund SUU programs and projects. SUU is a 501(c)(3) and all gift are tax deductible.

You may give to any departmental program or scholarship you wish. Some of the more popular funds to which faculty and staff contribute include:

  • Annual Fund
  • Faculty Senate Scholarship
  • Staff Association Scholarship
  • Student Success Scholarships
  • SUU T-Bird license plate. By giving in this manner, you will also enjoy the valuable benefit of parking in any permitted lot on campus!
