Giving to the College


Gifts from donors—including alumni, friends, firms, allied professions, foundations, and other organizations—provide key funding for many areas in the College of Design.


Many programs outside the regular budget could not be sustained without donor support. Here are just a few examples of areas that are impacted by private gifts:


  • Scholarships and Fellowships

  • Public lectures

  • Sponsorship of visiting scholars

  • Communication with alumni and donors via publications

  • Recruitment and recognition of students with prizes and other awards

  • Faculty in their teaching, research, and outreach activities
  • Research and outreach units
