Make a Gift FAQs
Many individuals give to the College because they are grateful for the opportunities their College education provided for them. Others give because they view the support of the College as a good investment in the future of the community and region.
Whatever your motivation, your individual support provides opportunities for students, faculty, programs and ongoing operations. Gifts of all sizes are important because they enable us to remain one of the best colleges available.
You decide where your gift goes by simply indicating your preference. Whether you give via mail, make a pledge or donate online, you will have the opportunity to tell us what to do with your gift. My gift of $10, $25, $50, or even $100 seems too small to make a difference.
Think about it... ... 10,000 gifts of $50 equal $500,000! This is quite an impact on students' lives.

Immediate needs change from time to time. Gifts from alumni and friends fill critical funding to help the College provide quality education. While some gifts to the College are designated by the donor for specific purposes, other donors prefer to designate their gifts for use where the College determines the need is the greatest.
An endowment is a long term investment in the College that provides benefits to students, faculty, or programs year after year, generation after generation. For endowed funds, the donor stipulates that the principal must be invested and all or a portion of the income be expended to carry out the donor’s purpose. To guard against the eroding consequences of inflation, the remaining portion of investment return is added to the principal. The goal is to ensure the principal maintains its purchasing power over time to support future generations.
