Gift by gift
Creighton’s story began with a visionary act of philanthropy — when Mary Lucretia Creighton made a gift of $200,000 to start a Jesuit, Catholic university in Omaha. More than 140 years later, our story continues, donor by donor, gift by gift.
You can keep Creighton thriving. You can support the University and our students through gifts to scholarships, academics, programs, mission and improvements to our campuses in Omaha, Phoenix and Hastings.
Every gift matters. Every gift, no matter the size, adds up to something great. You can make a difference today!

Why I give
"My Creighton education itself is why I choose to give to Creighton. With the University's Jesuit tradition and emphasis on reflection, you can't come to Creighton without thinking about what your contribution to the world should be. That makes it so unique. And it makes me want to continue supporting Creighton."
— Nikki Rieck, BSW’94, Creighton Fund donorRead more about Nikki

Stories of giving
A weeklong health sciences camp that introduces high school students to health care careers — a partnership between Creighton University and Arizona State University — will double its size thanks to a gift from the Burton Family Foundation.
In September, about 100 Creighton alumni, friends, faculty, staff and community leaders — including Nebraska Gov. Jim Pillen and Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert — celebrated the opening of the CL and Rachel Werner Center.
The donor-driven CL and Rachel Werner Center for Health Sciences Education — which broke ground in 2021 — is student focused, with nearly every square foot of the facility dedicated to classrooms, collaboration and hands-on learning.
