The spring tradition of making big things happen returns April 13-14 during Samford’s Big Give. For 36 hours, alumni, students, parents and friends will celebrate the leadership of our 18th president and first lady Andy and Jeanna Westmoreland. In recognition of their work and upcoming retirement, Bulldogs across the globe will have the opportunity to show their love for Samford by supporting scholarships and enhanced diversity initiatives in honor of the Westmorelands.

From empowering students with real-world experiences to advancing academic excellence, the Big Give remains an easy, fun and exciting way to make your mark as part of the Samford family. With matching and challenge opportunities throughout the event, your contribution has the potential to make double the impact.

Join the celebration early by spreading the word about the #SUBigGive and pledging your support to the areas above or to any area of Samford you love most.

Samford will not be the same without the Westmorelands, but because of their service, the world is better for it.
