The Power of Giving

Our donors allow us to continue our mission to help students lead meaningful and productive lives. From attendance at our giving events to donations to our Alumni Endowed Scholarship Fund, we’re able to turn the generosity of our alumni into opportunities for our students today, so they can do more with their tomorrow.

Why Give to Graceland?

The Graceland network is unbeatable. You have the opportunity to connect with Graceland alumni, as well as continue to build relationships with other students, staff and faculty on campus. Utilizing the Graceland network, along with building my resume with on-campus experiences, led me to my career in professional sports.

Why Give to Graceland?

My connection with GU came full circle since being a student there 77-80 and then working in the school of education from 2012-19. I'm forever grateful for the many friendships and degrees earned by two of my children and me.

Why Give to Graceland?

I'm grateful for Graceland because I met my wife Ramona Jenson ‘63 Collins…the best thing that ever happened to me. It also introduced to wrestling and became a 2-time All-American and I got a wrestling assistantship that paid for my Masters and PhD. Thank you Graceland! And I have 3 grandkids at Graceland now!

Why Give to Graceland?

Graceland is a good fit for me because I love the size of the school - it’s not too big or too small. I get to grow as a person and get to be involved in a lot of leadership rolls. I get to learn and meet people from different backgrounds and make friends with people I can always count on!
