Discover how every gift makes a direct impact on a student’s life
The JBUSF makes a direct investment in the lives of students by making JBU more affordable. Generous support from alumni, parents and friends helps students receive this annual financial assistance they need to pursue a Christ-centered education at JBU.
One hundred percent of gifts to the JBUSF go directly to need-based scholarships or work-study positions. Today, approximately one-half of the student body receives an average award of $1,750 each year from the JBUSF.
The Founder’s Circle is comprised of 335 alumni, friends and parents who commit to pray for JBU, promote the University’s mission and provide an unrestricted gift of $1,000 or more annually to the JBUSF. Click here for information on becoming a member of this integral support system for the JBUSF.

“Scholarships made it possible for us to attend JBU. We give to the JBUSF because we want to invest in students like those who invested in us. We care very much about this university. JBU gave us so much, and we’re blessed to give.”

“When I was a student, I met so many people who gave to JBU because they wanted students to have the gift of Christian higher education. Now that I’ve graduated, I want to do the same. I believe in the work that JBU is doing, and I know I’m called to be faithful to give in my excess or need.”
