Why We Give
Gifts received for the Annual Fund will allow us to dedicate more of our budget to scholarships. Given the current downturn in our economy this aspect of our fundraising efforts has become even more important. With over 95% of our students receiving some type of financial aid Annual Fund dollars allow us to make an already affordable education even more so. During the course of the year, four Annual Fund brochures are sent to our friends and benefactors. Each will feature one of many students who benefit from the generosity of people like you. Our request is that you join them to help make a difference in the lives of students at NGU.
If you are a first time donor, please know that any size gift will be gratefully received. If you are an alumnus, your gift will have the additional impact of increasing our alumni participation rate which currently stands at 6%...the national average is 14%. This number is important when seeking support from Foundations and others who want to know if those who know us best give to insure our success.
If you already give to North Greenville, thank you! If you have never made a gift to NGU here are some additional reasons to consider an investment in our school.
