Samford University will celebrate the 10th annual Big Give on April 5-6. This year’s fundraising campaign will focus on “for the love of Samford,” which is in reference to President Beck A. Taylor’s calling for the university to be “rooted and ground in love,” as written in Ephesians 3:16-19. Samford invites students, alumni and friends to invest in the Big Give for the love of the institution.

The Big Give is a 36-hour crowdfunding campaign where the Samford community comes together to support the university in all areas. When you give during the Big Give, even small acts of generosity grow into something far beyond what we could imagine. Your donation helps plant and nourish Christ’s love and selfless example by building a culture of giving. It also helps grow the love rooted at Samford into the communities we serve.

Those who are interested in learning more about how to share your love for Samford are encouraged to become a SAMbassador. To learn more about how to become one, explore the SAMbassador toolkit or register for training on March 29 at 12 p.m. CST.
