Your financial gifts provide the University with funds to help students, directly or indirectly. Your contributions help deserving young people learn critical thinking skills, provide well maintained buildings, and help supply the latest equipment and tools. Some financial gifts are meant for longer term use, invested to assure that young people growing up now enjoy the same opportunities that we have today.
Annual giving provides you with immediate return on your investment. For example, funds given by alumni, parents, students, faculty, corporations, and foundations keep the campus infrastructure in great shape. Those who give matching or tribute gifts can help current students have new experiences. Longer term financial gifts include endowments or gift and estate planning, which range from personal property and real estate to annuities and bequests.
