Three consecutive years of $4 million contributions to SAGU
Irby McKnight, Vice President for Advancement, said, "We are blessed that we have people giving to SAGU. Without their contributions, it would be impossible to grow as an institution. We are very thankful." He continued, "Although the 2.6 million increase and sustained giving is incredible, this is just a milestone to where we are striving to be."
Although the contributions are dispersed to specific areas in the university, the greatest amount of growth is in the scholarship fund. In the past years, outside contributions to the scholarship fund has increased from $500,000 to $1,325,000. This fund incorporates and is dispersed equally to the multiple scholarships available.
"The contributions toward the scholarship fund is significant because they are need-based, it is money donated from outside of the university that we can in-turn give to the students."
