Giving for SVSU Faculty, Staff & Adjuncts

As an SVSU employee, you play an important role in the success of this university and our students. There are dozens of ways you can support students, including through financial contributions to scholarships, academic programs, athletic programs, or other student experiences and programs. If you prefer to have your gift used "where needed most," you may designate it for unrestricted purposes.

Every employee gift, large and small, makes an impact.

  • Impacts Students - If a student struggles to afford tuition, the resulting financial stress undercuts their education and opportunities for learning outside of the classroom. 
  • Impacts Recruitment and Retention - Scholarships can be the tipping point that determines whether or not we welcome that new Cardinal in the fall.
  • Impacts Giving from Other Donors - High employee participation in giving communicates to foundations and major donors that we are personally willing to invest in our mission and our students.


Payroll deduction gifts are debited from your paycheck either in one lump sum or over a specified period of time. Many SVSU faculty and staff find payroll deduction to be an easy and convenient way to make their gifts to the university as well as a way to afford a larger annual gift.

If payroll deduction isn't your first choice, anyone can set up a convenient monthly recurring donation from their credit card. Using this option, you can set up your gift with the reassurance that you'll be making a sustained impact. 

Because SVSU adjunct faculty are not eligible for payroll deduction giving, recurring gifts are a great alternative option to enhance support.

If you have an existing recurring gift and want to upgrade your monthly recurring giving, email the Foundation:

Thank you for all you do for SVSU.
