Reunion Class Gift

When you give back to Creighton through a reunion class gift, you help your alma mater provide scholarships for students, support important work being done at your school/college and continue faculty development programs that enhance teaching and contribute to the greater good.

A reunion gift helps support:

  • Scholarships for our students who would otherwise be unable to afford a Creighton education.
  • Creighton’s nine schools and colleges, providing support for their individual programs and the important work being done by their faculty, staff and students (you can direct your gift to the school/college of your choosing).
  • Faculty development programs that enhance teaching and contribute to the expansion of general knowledge and the betterment of the global society.
