Support our Mission

Take part in our mission of alignment with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to gather faithful Latter-day Saints and like-minded students, to lift them in intellect, character, and spirituality, and to launch them into successful lives and careers.

Invest in Trend-Defying Growth

Your support will help Southern Virginia University continue to be one of the fastest-growing schools anywhere. We are bucking the trends of declining enrollments across most of higher education; our outlying growth is proof that what we do works.

Open Doors of Opportunity

We are passionate about creating opportunities for all kinds of students. That’s why we gather motivated students from all backgrounds—including many first-generation college students. Your generosity will open doors of opportunity that would be otherwise closed.

Lifting at All Levels

After gathering from all backgrounds, we believe in lifting at all levels through one-on-one teaching and support, and equal access to state-of-the-art technology—including an iPad Pro for every student. Your support enables us to level the educational playing field.
