Philanthropy is essential to the financial health and sustainable growth of the University of Providence. It’s never been easier to give back to UP.

Why Donor Gifts Matter

Endowed donations support student scholarships, academic and athletic programs, professional development for faculty and staff, crucial campus events and allow the maintenance of our infrastructure.

Annual donations support scholarships, facilities and maintenance.

“My husband and I give to our alma mater to support the people (coaches, faculty, staff and fellow students) who influenced our lives during that time to form who we are today.”

– Kylie (Class of 2014) and Luis Carranza (Class of 2013)

Each donation category presents strategic, intentional and laser-focused avenues to foster transformative educational opportunities for UP students. They allow students to achieve a life-changing education for living and making a living.
