Create a Legacy

“There’s no telling just how much one heart in the right place can do.”
- Michael McClean

Some wish to make a donation in honor of a family member or professor; some wish to ensure a bright future for students or the institution in which they graduated, and some just see the value of a solid investment in the students and programs at Utah Valley University. No matter the reason, creating or contributing to an endowment or scholarship fund takes root as your gift is invested and grows with time. The good you hope to do starts at once, builds each year, and lasts forever.

It is hard to measure the individual and personal impact of donations individuals like yourselves have graciously made on behalf of our students and programs. The lives of individuals have been positively and dramatically changed and can be directly correlated to the generosity of a donor. A student’s life can be transformed because a donation helped to provide much needed funds for tuition, books, or supplies. Private donations in support of student resources such as a tutoring lab or learning equipment contributes to the student success and engagement. Any size donation makes a positive difference and contributes to the lasting legacy that individual student will make in his/her life and in our community.

Other ways to strengthen your commitment:

  • Ask your employer if they participate in a matching gifts program.
  • Consider participating in an annual contribution to our engaged learning programs.
  • Give to UVU College of Technology & Computing with appreciated stock and securities, or through donor advised funds.
  • Leave UVU in your will or estate plans, utilize other planned giving vehicles.
