How to Make your gift

What is Giving DAy?


Every year, SAU alumni and friends set aside a special day to celebrate the University and its faculty, staff, and students by financially supporting their future. This is still true this year, and due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SAU needs your love and loyalty now more than ever.  

We understand that many of our Mulerider family are experiencing financial struggles. No size gift is too small!  Instead, it is your participation that makes us stronger during these uncertain times. You can hear a message from SAU President Dr. Trey Berry below.

Featured funds

Mulerider Strong fund

The Mulerider Strong Fund will provide pass-through operational funds to support the needs of the University. This support will soften the impacts of COVID-19.

Student Scholarships Fund

These pass-through scholarship funds that can be directed as traditional, summer school, transfer, graduate, room and board, or book/technology scholarships. Supporting a student in this way has an immediate and profound impact on their college experience.

Student Success fund

Supporting the Student Success Fund will provide pass-through funds to on-campus offices that provide much-needed services to our students, such as the Mulerider Market, Health Services, Counseling Services, Career Services, and more.

Academic Support Fund

The Academic Success Fund will provide pass-through funds to ensure that our faculty have the resources they need (technology/equipment) to deliver instruction either in-person or on-line. Enabling our educators to adjust to the “new normal” will have a large impact on our students.

Mulerider Athletics

Supporting Mulerider Athletics will provide pass-through funds to ensure that our coaches and student-athletes have the necessary resources to come back strong during our next season. You can renew your Mulerider Club membership with a gift to Athletics on Giving Day.
