For many students, financial assistance changes their lives by providing opportunities for growth and alleviating stress by allowing them to focus on their studies.

Funding Priorities

The College of Creative Arts and Media has identified a list of essential funding priorities that will power our accomplishments in education and research in the coming decades.

Student Scholarships and Enhancement

By creating new scholarship endowments, we will be able to provide financial support to many more eligible students. We also seek funds to support students doing internships and studying abroad - experiences that enhance their portfolios and professional opportunities.

Dean’s Fund

Discretionary funds allow the Dean to be reactive to changes in the industry and to create new programming (majors, special projects, etc.) based on those changes. These funds also supplement scholarships and allow us to bring artists and industry professionals to campus for speaking events.

Named Professorships and Chairs

As we face increased competition for top faculty, we must create salary and incentive packages that will allow us to recruit and retain the best professionals in our fields.

Making a Gift

We encourage you to make a contribution within the area you feel most passionate. If you have questions about the giving process, please contact Jennifer Jordan at for giving to the Schools of Art and Design, Music, and Theatre and Dance, or the Art Museum. Contact Mary Esposito at for giving to the Reed School of Media and Communications.

Ways to Give

Gifts can be made online, by mail or by phone. Additionally, there are several different types of giving including planned gifts, gifts in kind, annual giving and more.

Maximizing Your Gift

You or your spouse may work for a company that matches employees’ gifts to higher education. These programs are a great way to multiply your support by doubling, or in some cases tripling, employees’ gifts. Please contact your employer for details.

Tax-Deductible Gifts

Year-end gifts must have a USPS postmark of December 31 or earlier to receive tax credit. A USPS postmark of December 31 or earlier is valid regardless of when we receive the check. Your tax advisor is the best resource for addressing questions regarding the deductibility of your contribution.
