About Grand Canyon University’s Community Outreach Efforts

Community OutreachGrand Canyon University is a private, Christian university strongly committed to serving others on a local, national and global level to make an impact that lasts a lifetime.

The university leads a wide variety of volunteer programs for students and staff. Annual events - such as the Memorial Day Salute Our Troops celebration, the neighborhood Fall Festival and the Run to Fight Children's Cancer - are the cornerstone of GCU's community outreach efforts. Staff and students also look for new opportunities to serve as needs arise by providing support to those affected by natural disasters across the country and the world.

Community OutreachIn addition, the university is committed to supporting the community service efforts of other organizations by creating teams dedicated to fundraisers like the American Cancer Society's Climb to Conquer Cancer, the Salvation Army's Annual Turkey Drive and the American Red Cross's disaster relief efforts.

GCU's newest outreach project is a one-of-a-kind partnership with Habitat for Humanity to renovate an entire community of homes in our surrounding neighborhood. GCU employees will help finance the project through contributions to a state tax-credit program. Employees and students will also pair with Habitat leaders to supply the manpower necessary to repair the neighborhood homes. For more information or to find out how you can help, click here.

This site covers just a fraction of GCU's impact on the community. As an interdenominational Christian university, GCU has a legacy of guiding students to become socially responsible, compassionate servant leaders by connecting with their community.
