Ways to Give

Make an impact through annual giving

Annual giving provides vital support that helps the university fulfill its mission. When a donor makes an annual gift, they join thousands of alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends in making a difference. These gifts make a combined impact that is extraordinary, by supporting innovative programs, urgent needs, and important priorities.

  • Annual Scholarships
  • Equipment and materials for classrooms, laboratories, and our library
  • Faculty support (professional development and research projects)
  • Program support
