Brigham Young University

INSPIRING LEARNING is what Brigham Young University is all about; the phrase summarizes the university’s mission “to assist individuals in their quest for perfection and eternal life.”

Known for its world-class teaching, and its beautiful mountain location, and its bright students, many of whom have lived outside the U.S., BYU develops students of faith, intellect, and character who continue to learn and serve others throughout their lives.

Through donations, generous alumni and friends provide students with experiences such as mentored learning, research assistantships, internships, study abroad, work-study, and other student aid. Donors also provide support for additional board-approved programs including BYU Athletics and BYU Broadcasting.

“Donors make the university and the BYU experience better for our students,” says President Kevin J Worthen. “BYU is grateful for all the support it receives.”

BYU’s Inspiring Learning Initiative lets you help more students have more life-changing, and world-changing, BYU experiences.

A Tale of Two Seasons: Tackling Athletics in a World with COVID-19

Last year was kind of a tale of two seasons. The first was a very joyful and rewarding experience with our student-athletes, coaches, and teams playing so well. And the other was the cancellation of our spring season.” –Tom Holmoe, BYU Athletic Director
