The Great Commission Fund  supports immediate and evolving needs to equip all  University of Mobile departments, faculty and programs to fully prepare students to live their Great Commission calling professionally and personally.
Your investment in our students through The Great Commission fund enables UM to provide them with a high-quality, liberal arts education with a biblical worldview. Through intellectual development and spiritual formation, these future leaders of faith and character make a positive impact on our community and around the world.

Gifts to The Great Commission Fund meet the most essential needs of University of Mobile. Your gift, no matter the size, directly impacts the lives of current and future students as they receive Higher Education for a Higher Purpose, setting them apart for their Great Commission-focused future.

Give to UM
Meeting your personal charitable goals is at the heart of University of Mobile’s Charitable Estate Planning process. Through the years we have found that individuals who make thoughtful plans regarding their estate are able to accomplish their philanthropic goals as well as meet their current financial objectives.

Some options for planned gifts include:

  • Bequests
  • Life Income Gifts
  • Asset Protection
  • Retirement Plans
  • Estate Notes

Our charitable giving professionals work closely with your legal and tax advisors to design a strategy that helps you meet both your personal financial plan and charitable giving intentions through creative gift planning solutions.

When you create an Endowed Scholarship at University of Mobile, you are establishing a timeless fund that directly supports UM students. Establishing an Endowed Scholarship is a unique and memorable way to recognize a loved one or someone who has made a significant difference in your life.

Maintaining the qualities that define University of Mobile, and keeping it strong for the future, require substantial resources.
These qualities distinguish University of Mobile as a Christ-centered academic community providing comprehensive liberal arts and professional programs to distinctively transform the world.

They include a small student to faculty ratio in which all professors teach undergraduates; faculty and staff that are dedicated to developing students who have a heart for God and a passion for service to their community; and an exceptionally talented, diverse, and dedicated student body who seek to make a positive impact on the world.

Endowed gifts allow all of these elements to thrive. They can be unrestricted or designated by the donor for use in support of specific scholarships, programs, initiatives, or building/renovation projects. The Office for Advancement works with alumni, parents, and friends of University of Mobile to match their interests with the needs of the University.

These gifts to the University endowment are invested, and their earnings provide a permanent source of income for the University. Endowment funds are vital to ensuring that the University will continue to fulfill its mission for generations to come.
