Support through the Annual Fund
The Annual Fund is a mostly unrestricted, annual gift program that provides funding for programs and projects that are essential, but otherwise unfunded. The Fund provides reliable financial support to programs that are critical to supporting our students’ education.
By making contributions from year to year, alumni and friends provide a reliable stream of support for academic and student-life programs and encourage others to give as well. State funds and tuition alone do not meet the cost of educating today’s students.
For more information on making an annual gift, contact Corey Sanchez.
Annual Fund Class Council & Advisory Committee
The Annual Fund Class Council is composed of an alumni class volunteer who works to stay informed about the happenings at the College in an effort to communicate with fellow classmates to raise awareness of the need for financial support for the College.
With support from the Office of Advancement and Alumni Engagement, the Annual Fund Class Council Advisory Committee promotes the importance of annual unrestricted contributions to the Annual Fund. These volunteers have also committed to making an annual gift in support of the College’s efforts.
The Annual Fund fiscal year ends June 30 of each year.
