Giving to the Colleges


CLAS has transitioned into the College of Science and the College of Humanities & Earth and Social Sciences.

Thank you for your patience as we sunset this website over the 23-24 academic year.

Your College challenges students to create a different space—one in which they interact with each other and with the world around them in new and exciting ways. They learn to balance abstract thought with pragmatic responsiveness. Students are challenged to think more broadly, more deeply and more independently than ever before. They gain the confidence to take risks and they learn to act compassionately by working alongside their professors and fellow students in the classroom, in laboratories and in the broader community.

By investing directly in your College, you are touching the lives of virtually all students at the university and transforming the region and state through well-prepared future citizen-leaders—our students. With your investment, you leverage discovery for the public benefit through programs of research, creative activities and graduate education that span the disciplines.

Matching gifts

If you or your spouse/partner work for a company that matches your charitable gifts, you may be able to increase the size of your donation through a matching gift. Search our online database to see if your organization participates.


Gifts made to create an endowed fund are invested for perpetuity. A portion of the earned income is then used to support the fund’s purpose. Any excess earnings are reinvested, allowing the fund to grow. Endowments may be created for student scholarships and fellowships, faculty chairs and professorships, or many other purposes.
