Warriors at heart. Your campus experience may only last a few years, but your connection to Southern Wesleyan can last a lifetime. Stay connected to SWU through events, publications, and social media.

The faith-filled community at SWU is comprised of students, faculty and staff who are passionate about learning and growing, both inside and outside of the classroom.


Giving to Southern Wesleyan is easy! We offer several convenient options for making a gift. Give towards the general fund or towards specific memorials or causes. 

Partnering with us

Thank you for your interest in supporting Southern Wesleyan! We’re excited about our mission to transform lives by challenging students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ. Our mission has not changed: we remain dedicated to educating and nurturing students as they seek God’s plan for their lives. Your support is an investment in this mission, in Southern Wesleyan, and in the life achievements and spiritual growth of our students.

Fulfilling our mission wouldn’t be possible without your prayers and support. We would love to partner with you to make an even bigger difference in their lives. Learn more about how you can partner with us to prepare the next generation to fulfill God’s calling on their lives.

Why is your participation important?

  • The gap between diminishing State and Federal Aid is growing at alarming rates. Giving toward SWU student scholarships begins to bridge that gap for hundreds of students.
  • Your annual gift provides ONGOING scholarship support for students; keeping them in college to graduation!
  • Your support shows that SWU is a good investment and any gift is a gift that keeps on giving, turning recipients into future givers themselves!
  • You can directly impact the futures of students as they fulfill God’s plans for their lives. Forecasters predict that as many as 30 percent of private institutions of higher education will not survive this decade. Yet those serving a stable number of traditional-aged students, as well as a large non-traditional student enrollment, have a very bright future. Southern Wesleyan falls into this fortunate group.

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.
