The Creighton Fund

One of the easiest and most effective ways to give to scholarships and enhance student life.

A gift to the Creighton Fund means a gift to the general fund of the University. This allows us to channel your support into Creighton’s greatest and most immediate areas of need for our students, faculty and staff.

When you give to the Creighton Fund, you’re supporting scholarships, research, academic excellence, innovation and so much more. You’re helping Creighton form leaders educated in the Jesuit tradition and ready to set the world on fire.

Give to the Creighton Fund today!

Every gift counts. Most gifts to the Creighton Fund are less than $250. But together they add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars for the University every year!

It all starts with scholarships. Tuition alone doesn’t fully cover what it costs to educate our students. In fact, it only covers about two-thirds of it. About 98% of our students receive financial aid or scholarships. Last year alone, Creighton awarded nearly 1,900 scholarships to students across all schools and colleges.

Scholarships are the University's No. 1 fundraising priority. When you support scholarships, you help our students manage costs and alleviate debt load. But more than that, you give them a transformative sense of belonging, purpose and personal growth.

The result? A new generation of service-minded advocates ready to face the future and improve our world.

Thank you for your support!

"When you support scholarships, you’re not just changing my life. You’re changing my family’s, too. I'm tearing up just thinking about how much it means to my mother that I'm getting a great education and studying to become a physician. Thank you for helping me come to Creighton. Thank you for helping me make my parents proud."
