Fund Development works with donors and friends who want to support the College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET) through contributions of $25,000 or more to identify giving opportunities that align with the needs of the University. Leadership support from alumni, parents, corporations, foundations, and friends fosters transformative change and enables Jackson State University (JSU) to achieve its long-term priorities and goals. Unlike annual gifts that provide unrestricted funding to respond to more immediate needs, most major gifts are used to endow scholarships, professorships or programs to fund the renovation or construction of new facilities.
We work closely with alumni, parents and friends of Jackson State University to find the best possible match between their interests and the needs of the University. Major gifts can be paid over a period of time, typically up to five years. Specific funding opportunities to endow programs or provide other forms of support are outlined below. Interest income from endowments provides an annual income stream that enables the university to make strategic investments while preserving the principal gift in perpetuity.
Please contact Angela Getter at (601) 979-0976 for additional information about giving opportunities.
