Annual Fund

More than 98% of SBU students receive scholarship support.  SBU is a Christ-centered, caring academic community dedicated to preparing our students for a life of purpose and a fulfilling career. When you give to the annual scholarship fund, you are investing in the lives of SBU students. 

It is more than an investment into students’ academic endeavors; it is a statement that you believe in them and in the Christ-centered future to which God has called them.  Southwest Baptist University's annual scholarship fund exists to provide life-changing, Christian education at SBU for those students with great potential, and great financial need. 

We need your support! It doesn't matter how much you give; it matters that you give. When you give to SBU, you change lives. You change the world. To help meet the needs of SBU students, please give online now.

Give back because

  • Your donations will help current and future SBU students
  • You can help raise up a new generation of Bearcats who are competent and creative problem-solvers
  • SBU sends scholarly, Christ-centered servants into a global society

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you. Please contact Megan Hibma, assistant director of annual fund, at (417) 328-1801 or
