Learn More about our Giving Societies

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!


Jacksonville University alumni help the students of today become the alumni of tomorrow. A monetary gift each year to your alma mater will sustain and improve the quality of instruction and education, provide scholarships for future Dolphins, and boost Jacksonville University’s ranking against other institutions.

We invite alumni to participate in the tradition of annual giving by making a gift to JU’s Greatest Needs, or another area on campus.

Alumni Programs

Corporations and 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.

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.


JU parents and families traditionally support the University in ways meaningful to them and their students. The Jacksonville University President’s Parents Council goes above and beyond by annually supporting the JU’s Greatest Needs fund with a leadership gift. Support from parents and family members is important because the cost of delivering quality education at Jacksonville University is higher than that of tuition. We greatly appreciate the dedication of our parent body to the success of all JU students’ futures through their generosity.

Students also support JU through the Senior Class Gift. This exercise in philanthropic giving teaches the importance of giving back to the University and enables them to come together to leave a lasting legacy on campus.
