School and College Funds

School and college funds support the most pressing needs and essential components of a Creighton education across all fields and disciplines.

No ordinary education 

Graduates leave Creighton committed to service and infused with a desire to seek more — both of themselves and for the places they call home. This is the Creighton experience.

It’s an experience that endures thanks to the tremendous faculty and staff across our nine schools and colleges. The professors who change our students’ lives. The mentors who helped our alumni become the people they are today.  

You can help us carry forth this tradition of life-changing education by supporting Creighton’s fundraising campaign Forward Blue and making a gift to the general fund of your school or college. 

Make a gift to your school or college

School and college funds support the most pressing needs and essential components of a Creighton education across all fields and disciplines — leadership development, faculty resources, research opportunities, all the services, strengths and experiences that distinguish this education from any other in the nation.

Forward Blue

Forward Blue is the largest and most comprehensive fundraising campaign in Creighton’s history. The campaign is a massive, concentrated effort over an extended period of time to celebrate Creighton’s mission, while raising funds to ensure that mission endures. 

Serving our students first 

We know that alumni and friends have their own personal reasons for believing Creighton is an amazing place, their own feeling or memory that connects them to campus.   

One unifying thread of all Creighton experiences? Someone was there for me. In past surveys, graduating seniors and alumni said the strongest aspects of their Creighton experience were smaller class sizes, access to faculty/staff and the overall sense of community. 

Our faculty and staff have the time and space to focus on teaching and serving our students first. We give our students a markedly more personalized education, through smaller class sizes — an 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio — and the programs and services that help them flourish. 

The Creighton difference

Our students are the leaders of tomorrow. They're the women and men transformed by a Jesuit education made possible by your faith, generosity and commitment to Creighton.

Our path forward

Creighton is a world-class academic institution recognized for excellence in teaching, learning and research, and enriched by a centuries-long tradition of Jesuit, Catholic education.  

With our depth and breadth in the liberal arts, distinctiveness in the health sciences, preeminence in law and real-world innovation in business, we’re ready to advance the University’s standing and influence — locally, nationally and globally. 

A dynamic vision guides our path forward. Our one-of-a-kind Creighton community will lead the way. Forward Blue

A life-changing experience

 “I can’t imagine having picked any other college. I’d be an entirely different person. This education shows you how to harness your own gifts. It shapes your path. It gives you a sense of who you are.”
