Most Annual Fund gifts arrive by mail in the form of check or credit card. Now you can also send credit card gifts online!

Gifts to the Annual Fund can be made in honor or memory of a family member, friend, or professor who may have made a difference in your life. If a gift is being made in honor of someone else, enclose a note with the person’s name and address. The University will notify the honoree of your generous gesture.

All support provided through the Annual Fund is tax-deductible.
