When you give to the Creighton Fund, you help support students who want to take their Jesuit, Catholic education out into the world and contribute something meaningful. You help fund scholarships and financial aid as well as to enhance student life. By choosing the Creighton Fund you create unbelievable futures for our students—and help support faculty and student research, academic excellence and innovation.
There are many reasons to give to Creighton, but here are some of the most important:
94% of Creighton students receive some form of financial aid or scholarships.
Maintaining this level of support depends heavily on annual, unrestricted gifts.
Tuition covers only a portion of what it costs to educate a Creighton student.
Tuition at Creighton University only covers about 64% of the true cost of a Creighton education. The rest is provided by financial aid and scholarships, allowing thousands of the brightest students to attend Creighton that might not have been able to otherwise. Your gift to the Creighton Fund helps to bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the cost of a Creighton education. With your gift you help keep Creighton affordable and accessible to students from all paths of life.
Every gift makes a difference.
Most gifts to the Creighton Fund are less than $250, and together they add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars to sustain Creighton’s reputation for excellence. Annual gifts offer Creighton the most flexibility to address the University’s most pressing needs. Unrestricted gifts allow the University to tackle unforeseen challenges, pursue innovation and seize opportunities.
There’s strength in numbers.
