Together with the support of friends, parents, students, faculty, staff and alumni from all over the world, Samford University strives to make a big difference. From improving local and national programs to empowering students through once-in-a-lifetime opportunities, participating in the Big Give is an easy, fun and exciting way to make your mark as part of the Samford alumni family.

This year, alumni were asked to help choose four “Big Idea” projects to highlight during this year's Big Give. We invite you to make a gift of any amount to one of the four projects in support of helping our students excel. As always, you can make a gift to any area of Samford you wish to support. 

The Big Give is April 10-11, but you are welcome to help your favorite project get a head start by pledging your support today.
