Soka University of America does not conduct any official fundraising efforts through social media or crowdfunding sites. Tax-deductible donations using credit cards can only be made on this website or via phone.

The students of SUA thank you for your support!

Soka University of America educates students to develop wisdom, courage, compassion, and skills for peaceful dialogue. This positive impact ripples outward to benefit lives and communities around the globe.  

Soka’s unusual “need blind” acceptance policy allows us to admit the most keen-minded young people from around the world without concern for finances. This policy works because Soka is endowment-dependent: it relies on the returns from the investment to cover costs, not tuition fees. To continue to enroll and support the most qualified students, Soka must maintain robust growth of our endowment.   

With your generosity, we can continue to admit top students and send them out into the world as leaders to contribute to its betterment.
