College of Fine Arts Giving

Private gifts play a central role in our ability to grow our programs and provide the highest quality education for our students. Donations may be made to support student scholarships, programs, capital projects, faculty endowments and other vital areas. The impact of private support from our patrons, alumni, friends and parents is more meaningful today more than ever. We are thankful for your investment in our students.

The College of Fine Arts funding priorities fall under three broad categories: faculty and student support, program support and capital support.


Initiatives that support faculty and students enrich opportunities for mission-driven goals. They can be endowed or non-endowed funds. Examples can include but are not limited to professorships, chairs, scholarships, lectureships, etc.


Initiatives that focus on specific programs within the College of Fine Arts offer exceptional experiences for our students. These initiatives raise funds to support such things as performances, exhibits and productions. Program support can also include equipment and instruments, technology, travel, artist residencies and more.


Our facilities are critical to our ability to deliver high-quality instruction. Without a solid infrastructure, we cannot grow and thrive. Capital Projects include facility renovations, construction or expansion.
