Ways to Give


The inspirational stories of our alumni are compelling examples of the real-world effectiveness of a GGU education. These thousands of "proof points" affirm why we are consistently ahead of the curve as America's #1 School for Adult Learners. Your story is one of them, and your generous gift to GGU will be a tangible investment in "possibility" for yet another GGU graduate.

You can be part of GGU's accelerating impact in the meteoric rise of downtown San Francisco's global marketplace. Our agile, visionary responses to the current and emerging needs of our alumni and our community ever since the Gold Rush have positioned GGU to contribute even more -- with your generous help.

In this season of kindness, a tax-deductible year-end gift is a gift that keeps on giving. Your loyalty and commitment motivate the GGU undergraduate who is juggling real-world responsibilities, the mid-career professional advancing to the next challenging pursuit and the road-tested faculty who bring practical knowledge to our dynamic learning laboratories. The ROI is substantial -- for you, and for GGU.

Together, there is no limit to what we can make possible.
