VICTORIA This 3-foot trophy stays on the campus of the institution that fundraises the most money during the annual Battle of the Valleys charity competition between SVSU and rival Grand Valley State University. Since 2003, student leaders from each institution have annually chosen a local charity partner, then spend a week raising funds for their respective organizations. Both universities have raised $601,282 over the course of the competition. SVSU students alone have raised $389,444 of that total, keeping Victoria at SVSU’s campus for 12 out of 15 years. In September 2017, SVSU raised $32,115 for Mustard Seed Shelter, which provides housing and services for homeless women and children in Saginaw.
