The support and generosity of many ACU alumni and friends play a critical role in the Griggs Center delivering an innovative and impactful experience for ACU students. There are three main areas of need – Griggs Center endowment, student programs, and Springboard. We invite you to review each option below and appreciate your consideration of a gift. Please contact us at with any questions.

Griggs Center Endowment

Our endowment provides a sustainable funding source to help with our annual budget needs. As the endowment grows over time, it will provide funding for faculty and staff needs, student programs, and more. Your gift will be an investment in helping students for years to come.

Student Programs

We would not be able to offer many of our student programs each year without the support and generous gifts from ACU alumni and friends. Gifts to the Griggs Center can be directed to help support any of these programs, including the following: 

Please feel free to contact us at if you have questions about any of these programs.

Springboard Program

The Griggs Center's Springboard program includes an elevator pitch competition in the fall semester, a business plan competition in the spring semester, and an on-campus accelerator to assist students interested in starting a business. The program is designed to promote entrepreneurship on-campus and give students an opportunity to experience the process of launching their own venture.

Almost all of the funds donated to the Springboard program are distributed as cash awards or services to assist students in starting their own businesses. You can help create more opportunities for ACU's students by donating today.
