Equip to Influence

Equip students to influence through academic excellence

YOU are key to more students accessing vibrant Christ-centered learning at GU. With a gift today, you fuel learning experiences that build skills and cultivate character traits that employers value. You prepare even more students to be the salt and light of the Gospel across all industries throughout the world.



We are committed to Christ-centered learning in all its forms, building students' skills and character, and helping them grow spiritually. RISE UP helps passionate students with diverse backgrounds and experiences make GU a reality through increased financial aid and scholarships. 

How We Do It

  • Establish endowments for engineering, science, nursing, music, business, pastoral formation, and more. 
  • Create opportunities for more students to integrate their faith with academic disciplines and serve in these fields. 
  • Partner with businesses to provide unique learning experiences and internships.
  • Provide faculty with advanced training and instruction through our Center for Teaching and Learning. 



Makenna Hintz

Meet dedicated biology and chemistry major Makenna Hintz. She owes her educational journey to donors like you, who ensure a firm foundation of Christ-centered excellence in the sciences. She also serves as student body president. 

Her heartfelt words resonate: "Thank you for contributing to and investing in my future.” 


Blessed with Opportunities

I am beyond grateful for the experience here at GU.
