Happy graduates

Members of the BVU Sustainer program make an ongoing, monthly contribution through secure, automatic payments from a credit card, debit card, or bank account. Once you sign up, your membership auto-renews, so you’ll no longer have to remember “renewal” dates.

Sustaining membership is a convenient way for you to support a college experience that opens the door to the world for students.

How does your sustained gift make an impact? A few examples:

$10 per month

provides four hours of student tutoring in our Center for Academic Excellence.

$50 per month

provides funding for an Honors student’s senior research project.

Chemistry beaker

$84 per month

gives you membership in the Order of the Arch and covers the cost of a year’s lab supplies for five students.
