Types of Gifts

There are many types of gifts that can be made to the college, and there are many ways to make them.  We have three areas of greatest need: the Annual Fund, Scholarships and Professorships and Chairs.   

Annual Fund

The Annual Fund, sometimes referred to as the Dean's Fund, is an unrestricted fund that allows the college to use the funds to address areas of greatest need. Typically, these funds are used to do things like send students to conferences, handle emergency renovations and help with travel fees for guest lecturers. The Annual Fund is the most versatile tool in the fundraising arsenal. Alum Steve Karagiannis discusses the Annual Fund in the video below.

Scholarships

Scholarships are the life's blood of any college.  They allow us to help those students most in need and recognize our best and brightest. Every spring at the Honors Convocation we award thousands of dollars to deserving students (see video below). But we have far to go and we need your help.

Professorships and Chairs

An endowed faculty position (scholar, professorship, chair, deanship) represents the highest honor the University can confer on prominent faculty members. Endowed positions help attract and retain brilliant scholars. By providing dedicated resources for innovative research and teaching opportunities, endowed positions enable the most gifted faculty members and administrators to excel in their scholarly activities.  For more information, please read the story below on the Retzky Deanship.
