Ways To Give

Support the SSA Scholarship Funds

Scholarship support is our top priority. Help make an SSA education a reality for our outstanding students. Your gift to the SSA Scholarship Funds can be life-changing—providing financial aid or emergency financial assistance. You can give a gift that will be applied where the need is greatest, or you can give to a specific fund:

  • Give Online. Donating online is fast, easy, and secure.  (If you wish to give to a specific fund, please note that in the comment box if you give online.)
  • Give by phone. Call  773.834.8803 or toll-free 888.824.4224 between the hours of 8:30 AM and 5:00 PM Central Standard Time (CST) (If you wish to give to a specific fund, please make the gift officer aware of your designation.)
  • Give by mail. Send a check or credit card information to: SSA Fund, University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration, 969 E. 60th Street, Chicago, IL 60637
