The College Fund

The College Fund (formerly the Arts & Sciences Annual Fund) is the cornerstone of giving at the College. Through this fund, alumni make gifts that invest in today's students and faculty.

Unrestricted gifts to the College Fund allow Dean Woo to direct funds toward the most immediate needs of the College and to take advantage of promising opportunities that arise during the academic year. During a time of budget cuts, support for the the College Fund is not just important, it’s critical. Gifts to the College Fund support a broad range of operations of the College including these priority initiatives of the Dean:

  • Graduate Support
  • Research and Faculty Support
  • Centers and Institutes
  • Departmental and Program Support
  • The Undergraduate Educational Experience

With well over 100,000 alumni, parents and friends, the College relies on participation in giving to the College Fund to maintain its strength. Currently, 7% of our alumni are active participants in the College Fund. Their contributions, along with those of parents and friends, raise approximately $4 million annually in unrestricted support, with gifts ranging anywhere from $10 to $100,000. Join us in our goal to increase participation, increase unrestricted support and make an immediate difference for students and faculty of the College and Graduate School of Arts & Sciences.
