UK is a public institution, but only a small percentage of its budget is provided for by state funding. Private philanthropy is vital to sustaining our community. It provides scholarships so that students can achieve their academic and professional goals, programming support to keep the college at the forefront of arts education and resources to recruit and retain the finest artists and field leaders to our world-class faculty and staff. We need your help to nurture the creativity and exploration that impacts our culture, our society and our nation's growth.

Areas to Support

How can you help? By giving to the annual fund of the College, school/department or program that you care about. These funds allow each area to prioritize its unique needs and goals. From innovative instruction methods to scholarships to creative activity and research, these things define the College of Fine Arts experience for our students.

Ways to Give

Establish an Endowment

Endowments are incredibly important to sustaining the college's quality of excellence now and into the future.

Endowments allow donors to provide everlasting support to the area they are most passionate about in the College of Fine Arts. Endowments may be created through a single gift or by payments over a five-year period. These funds are then placed in long-term accounts, where the principal remains intact. The earned interest provides funding for the designated students, faculty or program.

One gift can support generations of fine arts education.
