A Solid Foundation
Samford University is a complex network of buildings, land and people, all of which take time, and money, to sustain. A solid foundation of support allows us to maintain our campus and frees us to invest in our students and community by growing the reach of our offerings.
It costs $165 million per year to operate a quality university like Samford. Only 70% of this cost is covered by tuition and fees. With your help, we can close this gap and sustain the momentum and progress that has made Samford a top nationally ranked university.
The goal is $60 million to offset operating costs and keep tuition rates affordable.
