For more than 100 years, the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration has been preparing the nation’s most accomplished social work practitioners, administrators, and policy makers. Applying their analytic training and rigor toward developing new research-based techniques and insights, these leaders are shaping innovative approaches preventing social problems from worsening, and providing improved direct service to benefit those in greatest need. Their efforts would not be possible without the generous support of our donors. Your gift to SSA may support:

  • Student scholarships
  • Faculty research
  • Student field work and education

Or you may direct your gift to an SSA Special Initiative of your choosing.

Ways to Give

Making an online donation to the SSA Fund is the easiest way to give. The SSA Fund is an unrestricted fund that supports the general scholarship fund as well as core educational programs and faculty research. You also may contact us to learn more about other gift options, including planned giving or including SSA in your retirement or estate plans. Big or small, your gift will make a meaningful impact on the lives of our students and the future of SSA.
