In this period of limited state funding for higher education, your support is needed more than ever to maintain opportunities for our students to pursue their careers and help keep tuition and fees as low as possible.

You can direct your financial support to fulfill your goals, or donate to:

The Foundation Scholarship Fund - helping students in financial need

The Fund for Excellence - helping meet the unfunded and unanticipated needs of the college
