WAYS TO GIVE
The Jackson State University Gap Phon-a-thon is an eight-week project that allows donors to connect directly with many of the students their contributions support. If you have been recently contacted by one of our JSU Phon-a-thon ambassadors and prefer online gift giving, you may make your gift securely online.

MAJOR GIFT GIVING
Endowments play a critical role in the long-term financial stability of Jackson State University. Endowments ensure that JSU students continue to excel across many spectrums – from the performing arts to public administration to engineering and athletics. Endowments support not only scholarships but also faculty retention and research while continuing academic excellence at the university. An endowment also makes an immediate impact on students and faculty now and well into the future.
Your endowment creates a legacy that will help JSU remain among the TOP 20 Historically Black Colleges and Universities while increasing the value of our degree programs. Leave a legacy endowment today and help us ensure that our dear old college home continues to “Challenge Minds and Change Lives.”
