The 365体育投注_365体育备用网址@ Fund

Gifts that empower innovation, build on tradition and provide the means to distinguish 365体育投注_365体育备用网址@ as a great institution of the liberal arts and sciences.

The three main drivers of our annual budget are tuition and fees, endowment draw and the 365体育投注_365体育备用网址@ Fund. Each year the $2 million to $2.5 million raised for the 365体育投注_365体育备用网址@ Fund bolsters our strategic initiatives, strengthens our programs and promotes the success of our 2,500 students.

These funds come in big and small gifts from alumni, friends and parents. They are especially important because they are flexible, allowing us to respond to unexpected challenges and to new opportunities that create an outstanding academic environment and vibrant college life.
