Why should I give to SNU?
The reasons for making a gift are personal to each donor. Perhaps working with students through the years makes you want to help support scholarships through The SNU Fund. Perhaps you would like to contribute directly to an academic department or a sports team that you feel is important to support. All gifts make a difference in the lives of SNU students.

How much should I donate?
Every gift, no matter the amount, is important to the future of each student at SNU. 

Can I specify how my contribution is used?
Yes, as the donor you specify how the gift will be used. You may select from a variety of funds that support people and programs across the entire campus.

Some funding opportunities that appeal to many donors include the SNU Fund, which provides scholarship funding that impacts all students, or The Angel Scholarship Fund, which is used specifically to keep students in school who are facing extraordinary financial situations.

What are my payment options?
There are many ways to make your gift. You may donate cash, check, credit card or through automatic payroll deduction. If you choose to utilize payroll deduction, you can set up your monthly deduction for a specified or indefinite amount of time. If you'd like to spread payments over several years, or if you're considering a gift of stock or a planned gift, please call us at (405) 491-6311 or email us at

Where do I send my gift?
You can make your gift on our secure, online giving site or mail a check to Southern Nazarene University, Attn. University Relations, 6729 NW 39th Expwy, Bethany OK 73008. If you are an SNU employee and you'd like to use payroll deduction, email and we will provide you a payroll contribution form.

What if I or my spouse works for a company with a matching gifts program? 
Your gift may double or even triple if you or your spouse’s company has a matching gifts program. Please check with the human resources department for program specifics and paperwork. You can also visit our Employer Matching Gifts Program page to search for a list of employers with gift matching programs.

Is my gift tax deductible?
Your gift qualifies for tax-deduction in accordance with IRS regulations during the calendar year that you make your gift. You will receive a gift receipt for your files. Consult your tax professional for more information.
