The Davenport Fund exists to generate annual gifts for Davenport University for the purpose of providing student scholarships and enhancing academic and student life programs across all campuses.
Designate Your Gift
Although many students rely on the scholarships they receive through The Davenport Fund, you may wish to designate your gift to another area, such as a specific area of study, project or program. Contact the Office of Advancement for more information on making your gift personal. A gift to The Davenport Fund makes a valuable and immediate difference.
Your gift as a Davenport alumnus/a shows students and the greater DU community that you value your Davenport education and experience. Contributing to The Davenport Fund demonstrates your belief in DU’s mission of preparing students for the most in-demand, fastest-growing careers in business, technology and health professions.

Corporate matching gifts are an excellent way for Davenport alumni and friends to maximize personal contributions to the University and increase the impact of their gift. By taking advantage of a company's matching gift benefit, you may be able to double or even triple the amount of your contribution.
How do I find out if my employer matches gifts?
To find out if your company has a matching gift policy, contact your Human Resources Office or call the Davenport University Office of Advancement at 616-233-3418 and we can check for a qualifying matching gift program at your workplace.
If your company is eligible, request a matching gift form from your employer and send the completed and signed form with your gift. We will do the rest.
Here's my gift!
As an employee you play an important role in helping students. Some of you teach, mentor, advise, admit or support students indirectly. All of you serve students with GREAT customer service and assist to help make their educational experience excellent. When you give a gift to The Davenport Fund you are not giving a gift to your employer, but you are providing a gift to the students you serve.
