You are important to the success of Southern Adventist University students and staff. The Advancement team is here to invite your involvement and welcome your participation in meaningful and productive ways. We invite you to see and experience the joy we have in being a part of God’s work at Southern Adventist University.
We believe God has given Southern Adventist University a mission.
We are called to be a learning community that nurtures students in becoming more like Christ. Your gift now will go to work right away helping provide outstanding education and the resources to help them excel.
If you believe in the value that Southern Adventist University provides, we encourage you to partner with us for a one-time or ongoing gift.
There are a variety of ways you can give that each have a unique impact on our students.
Each year, we hold several events for Southern's alumni and friends to learn about special projects and partner with us in furthering our mission. Homecoming is our largest gathering!
