With the support of alumni, friends, and the Samford community all over the world, the Big Give is back and poised to help “Bring Back the Bulldogs” in the fall. From student emergency assistance, need-based scholarships and other essentials, to the Excellence Fund for Diversity and Intercultural Initiatives, this year’s all-digital campaign will help ensure support for a wide-range of ongoing student needs. Although the feel of this event will be different from previous years, the Big Give remains a hallmark way to empower students, support programs and make a difference.
The Big Give will get underway August 11-12, but you can get a head start by pledging your support today or by spreading the word as SAMbassador. As always, you can make a gift of any amount by supporting the Big Give areas of emphasis or the area of your choice. Together, we will bring back the Bulldogs!
