Where Your Gift Goes

The majority of JCSU's individual gifts support the Annual Fund, which directly supports teaching, learning and discovery at Johnson C. Smith University.

Your Annual Fund gift is the most important kind of giving to Johnson C. Smith University because it goes where the need is currently greatest.

The JCSU Annual Fund
