Kinds of Gifts

Annual Giving

By establishing a recurring gift to the University, you ensure perpetual support for every JU student and faculty member by providing essential resources for a variety of expenses. Tuition only covers a portion of the actual cost of educating students. The JU Fund is the primary vehicle to support the tradition of annual giving at Jacksonville University. Annual or monthly contributions to The JU Fund help provide the additional revenue required to meet JU’s priority needs and are vital to enhance the University’s educational excellence.

Matching Gift information

To encourage philanthropic giving by their employees many corporations will match what the donor gives to a non-profit. A corporate matching gift can double or even triple the value of your gift! To find out if your company matches gifts and how to have your gift matched. Please contact your company's Human Resources office or check out our searchable database.

Planned Giving - Define Your Legacy​

Planned gifts​ are a wonderful way to support current and future JU students and to plan for your own life with a tax-wise gift. Some planned gifts support JU and are also income producing for you! Please contact us if you wish to include JU in your charitable estate plan or you would like to discuss planned giving options such as bequests, gifts of life insurance or real estate, charitable remainder trusts or gift annuities. Please contact Leslie Redd at (904) 256-7882​.


Looking for a unique way to make a mark on Jacksonville University? Purchase a personalized and commemorative brick paver for yourself, a loved one, a favorite professor, your graduating class, sorority, fraternity, or someone who has been a significant influence on your life.
