While Saginaw Valley State University, as a public institution of higher education, seeks to be a responsible and contributory corporate citizen of the communities it serves, its role is sometimes misunderstood or confused with those of other corporate organizations.

The University's primary sources of funding are tuition and fees paid by students, state appropriations and private contributions from individuals and organizations.  All of these funds are committed by their sources and received by the University to further the educational and public service missions of the University itself.  It would be inappropriate for the University to redirect funds it receives from these sources and for these purposes to other individuals or organizations, however worthy their mission.

Accordingly, it is the policy of the University to decline requests for corporate gifts or contributions to other charitable organizations or causes.
