Ways to Give

Investing in Southern Wesleyan University is easy and convenient. You may choose to invest in one of our many important facility enhancement opportunties, support the Promise Fund with an annual gift, and/or work with one of our advisors to develop a planned gift that is right for you.


The Promise Fund at Southern Wesleyan University

The Promise Fund provides critical support for student scholarships. Many students would not be able to attend SWU if it were not for the generosity of friends and alumni willing to invest in the next generation of student leaders!


Planned Giving

A planned gift is a charitable gift that is funded either during your lifetime or after. In addition to tax advantages, a planned gift allows you to dictate how certain assets are distributed and to know that you’ve made a difference. Through your generosity, you’ll leave a legacy, help future SWU students and enhance the caliber of Southern Wesleyan.



Catalog of Needs

With the list of needs in printed form we are asking friends of SWU to partner with us in identifying one or more of these needs. We recognize that most of us individually are not equipped to meet most of the needs found in this catalog, but collectively if we all join forces with family, friends and co-workers, much can be accomplished.
