Your support makes all the difference — make a difference today.


There is an undeniable spirit on our campus that comes from our commitment to both academic and spiritual excellence. Each year we rely on generous support from people like you to help us provide that spirit.

Donations make it possible for our students to develop the intellectual skills and personal characteristics they need to make a positive difference in the world.

Change a Life

“I am so grateful to the generous donors who made it possible for me to attend Southern Virginia University…They have changed my life permanently and helped me achieve so much here without ever even meeting me.”Alison Krebs, ’11

Southern Virginia University offers a distinctive combination of faith, service, academics, arts and athletics. What we call the “Genius of Small”—small classes and a small student body—provides opportunities for students to excel in the classroom and participate in a number of extracurricular activities.

Each year donations make it possible for our students to thrive both academically and spiritually.
