Annual Giving

Opportunity Fund -Your Gift Makes an Impact...

Opportunity for all is one of the greatest assets that Ferris State University provides. Preparing our students with specialized, innovative, career- and life-enhancing education is key, and we would not be able to do this without your help.

The Opportunity Fund provides emergency funding for students who are experiencing a family or financial crisis, have exhausted all other means of aid, and fear not being able to complete a semester or graduate due to their crisis. Funds may be used to assist in buying books, program supplies, tools, testing fees, internships, etc.

Many people think that they have to be able to give thousands of dollars to make an important difference.  That is not true.  At Ferris, our people – our alumni, students, faculty and staff are the difference – and together, their gifts of any size help each generation of students find a better future.
