Who Supports JU

Each year, Jacksonville University receives generous support from individuals and organizations including those groups listed below. As a private university, we rely on the tradition of giving to provide excellence for our current and future students. Thank you for continuing to support JU!


Support from JU alumni helps the students of today become the alumni of tomorrow. The percentage of graduates who give is critical to sustain and improve the quality of instruction at Jacksonville University. Alumni support is also a deciding factor among granting corporations and foundations as it demonstrates our alumni believe in and financially support our mission.​ We invite alumni to participate in the tradition of annual giving my making a gift each year to your alma mater.

Alumni Programs

Corporations & Foundations

Since Jacksonville University grew out of the business community, it is only natural that our institution has strong partnerships with numerous corporations and small businesses. We are proud to collaborate with these organizations and welcome the opportunity to expand our growing list of partners. In 2017, we launched the President’s Shareholders Circle to thank and recognize our corporate partners who annually invest and engage with our University.

Corporate and Foundation Partnerships

Faculty & Staff

We are extremely proud of the generosity our employees express through giving. Our devoted faculty and staff support the University in the office, classroom and financially. We are proud to recognize them as Dedicated Dolphins.

Because Jacksonville University has played an integral role in the local community for 83 years, the JU family includes many wonderfully supportive friends. These partners will always be Dolphins at heart and we appreciate their loyalty.


Our generous parents and families go above and beyond by joining the President’s Parents Council and supporting the JU Fund annually because they realize the cost of delivering a quality education at JU is higher than that of tuition. We greatly appreciate this dedication to the success of your child's future.
