Your gift to Bluefield State University makes a difference With your help, Bluefield State University is making education possible for West Virginians and others who could not otherwise attend an institution of higher learning. We rely on gifts from individuals and businesses to help us provide practical education that prepares students for challenging careers. The State of West Virginia funds only about 25% of BSU’s budget, tuition and grants also support approximately 40% of our programs and operations. Gifts from individuals make the difference in Bluefield State University’s ability to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds improve their lives through education. They also enable us to foster strong programs and keep pace with technology in a changing world. They help us attract and keep talented faculty who inspire our students. Gifts made to the Bluefield State University Foundation are used to build: Scholarships Faculty and staff development Academic programs Student travel opportunities Campus activities Alumni relations Capital improvements Your tax-deductible gifts directly benefit our students.
