Support The Shepherd Fund

The Shepherd Fund provides vital financial support for virtually every aspect of the Shepherd University experience. Contributions provide sustaining support for academic, scholarship, cultural, and athletic programs; faculty and staff development; campus renewal and beautification; and much more.

Giving to the Shepherd Fund has a tremendous and immediate impact on the students and faculty of the University by providing opportunities for growth and resources that enhance our current academic and extracurricular programs.

The goal is ambitious โ€“ to have our community make gifts totaling $75,000 to Shepherd University in one day. Please join us by making a gift to an area of Shepherd that you ๐Ÿ’™. 

We are investing in the lives of students, and every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference. There is no time to wait. Join us and donate to #ShepGives today!

Final Challenge has been Unlocked!

Our final challenge was unlocked: Over 25 alumni donated between the hours of 4-6 to unlock the SUAA Board Gift of $500 to the Shepherd Fund. 

There are still 5 1/2 hours left, so please continue to encourage friends and family to give. Our student organizations and clubs are still reaching for 20 donors to earn their free pizza from Dominos.
