RISE UP!

A story that began more than a century ago and continues to unfold.

Since June 2019, nearly 3,000 alumni and friends raised more than $46 million to champion GU students and Christ-centered learning – nearly 77 percent of GU's $60 million campaign goal.

We are grateful for you, our donors, alumni, and friends, who support Greenville University in many ways.

Happy Holidays!

EQUIP TO INFLUENCE

Our future needs wise and innovative leaders more than ever. Our students shine brightly in the sciences, education, audio engineering, criminal justice, digital media, and many other disciplines. To help prepare these future leaders, we strive to make GU education more accessible, affordable, and empowering.

EMPOWER TO LEAD

Empower students to lead, create spaces for growth

Together, we live, worship, and thrive as a community. Our students are empowered to become servant leaders on the field, in locker rooms, or within classrooms. As we build, we build futures. By giving students opportunities, we hope they will become more than they ever imagined they could be.
