Giving Initiatives

As we enter our second year of educating Christian students, we continue to rely significantly on your generous gifts. When you give to Great Northern University, our students are provided the opportunity to pursue their passions and God's call on their lives. Your gifts are truly an investment in the future of Spokane and the world, as you join us through your contributions in raising up the next generation of Christian leaders.

There are two primary initiatives that you can give to for the 2019-2020 academic year: 

2019-2020 Fund

Gifts that are given to the 2019-2020 Fund will help offset the cost of providing need-based tuition discounts to eligible students. These tuition discounts are given based upon the federal standards for financial aid, for students and their families who cannot access federal aid resources such grants and loans until Great Northern University receives full accreditation.

Accreditation Fund

Gifts that are given to the Accreditation Fund will help offset the costs of continuing to pursue accreditation. This upcoming year, Great Northern University intends to seek accreditation through a federally-recognized, national Christian agency for higher education, in addition to our current applicant status with a regional accreditor. This initiative will cost up to $65,000.
