How to Donate

When alumni like you support private, Christian higher education with a gift to Grand Canyon University, you are investing in the future of GCU students and the surrounding community. A gift of any size is a significant way to have a direct impact. We are humbled by your generosity and support of the GCU mission.

For the Lopes that Go Places

When you purchase a GCU license plate from the Arizona Department of Transportation a portion of your proceeds goes directly to GCU’s Students Inspiring Students program where students from low-income families have the opportunity to attend GCU.

Students Inspiring Students (SIS) Scholarship

Students Inspiring Students is a grassroots, self-funded scholarship initiative fostering a movement of students helping students and giving back. The Students Inspiring Students fund grants scholarships to local eligible high school seniors who have sought assistance in the GCU Learning Lounge.
