Briar Cliff joins Siouxland Big Give on Oct. 9

Siouxland Big Give

Sioux City, Iowa - Briar Cliff University is proud to be a part of the first-ever Siouxland Big Give! On Tuesday, October 9, join us for a 24-hour campaign to raise money for our Because You Matter Fund. You can donate to Briar Cliff University at

You Matter at Briar Cliff University, and our Because You Matter Fund will serve as a resource for students in need after experiencing financial hardship like a family emergency or job loss. While scholarships may help these students attend school, the cost of living, emergency traveling, and even eating may be more than what they can afford during a financial crisis. Our goal is to support these students during this time to ensure that they receive their education without undue financial burden that impacts their well-being.

The Because You Matter Fund will help students pay for things like food, emergency travel, gas, textbooks, winter coats, and even shoes. Items like these may seem small, but they can make the biggest difference in a student's ability to get their college degree. With your support, our students can focus on their future instead of how they're going to pay for their next meal or get home in the family emergency.

With your help, we can continue to support our students as they pursue their degree and become upstanding members of our Siouxland community. Learn more and donate at
