Engaging Minds, Transforming Lives



Every year Southwestern University donors have an opportunity to fund unique student-, faculty- and staff-driven projects. Typically, these micro-giving projects would go unfunded without the generosity of the Southwestern community.

What is Micro-Giving?

Micro-giving is a way that many alumni, parents and friends can come together (by pooling their resources) to fund an exciting campus project. Gifts of any size are important to making sure each project is fully funded. We hope you will consider making a gift today! 

What can I do to make sure a project is funded?

Make a gift to support a project (or all of them!) and invite your friends to join you by sharing projects on your Facebook page, Instagram or Twitter feed, or by email, phone call or in person. The more alumni and friends who contribute to these projects, the closer we get to reaching our goals!

What is the impact of my gift?

Your donation, regardless of its size, is a strong vote of confidence in Southwestern students and faculty! Your gift will not only help fund an exciting project but will also boost Southwestern’s giving participation rates, enhance the University’s visibility and reputation, and strengthen the Southwestern Experience.
