As faculty and staff, you see first-hand the daily struggles of students and improvements that could enhance our academic programs and campus. Here are many ways that your annual support can immediately make a difference for our students and our campus.
Make a gift to the Opportunity Fund which assists students during a crisis when all other forms of financial aid have been exhausted.
If you know of a student who is unable to continue semester classes or graduate due to financial crisis, you can direct them to the Financial Aid office for consideration.
College or Program:
Make a gift to a designated college or program of you choice and know that you are having an immediate impact on the quality of students' experiences and education.
A Legacy of Opportunity:
Whether you support an existing scholarship or create a new one, your gift helps to provide a lasting legacy of opportunity.
Scholarships can also be created for honorary and memorial purposes as well as individually or as a group of coworkers with a common cause.
