Faculty Staff and Retiree Funds

Faculty, Staff, and Retirees Fund are gifts that can be given by payroll deductions or one time payments.

Priority Needs (unrestricted gifts)

Unrestricted gifts help to expand college access by funding scholarships, and support college initiatives in strengthening student services.

General Scholarship Endowment

Donors can direct their gifts to our general endowment to create a legacy for future generations of students. Endowment builds income in perpetuity through Foundation-managed investments that produce income for scholarships and programs.

Named or Designated Funds

Donors can also create an endowed program fund or a named scholarship fund with gifts of $25,000 or more. Endow a fund through gifts of cash or stock, a bequest, or a planned gift.

Matching Funds

Many employers match gifts their employees make to educational institutions. Check with your company to see if they offer this benefit. This is an excellent way to multiply your contribution.
