The Emory & Henry Fund (annual fund) has become increasingly important to the vitality and strength of the College as these unrestricted gifts empower the institution to utilize resources where they are needed most. But we understand that sophisticated donors want a better understanding of where their gift is appropriated. That’s why we are pleased to introduce the new E&H Family of Funds.
A Family of Funds
With the Family of Funds, you now have the opportunity to choose what type of influence your donation will have. Providing more giving options and new, broader choices enables you to direct your charitable support to an area most meaningful to you. It’s all about giving our generous donors more options!
Designated Giving Areas:
Areas of Greatest Need & Opportunity
Donations will be directed to the College’s most pressing, urgent needs and promising opportunities as defined by the President.
Contributions support the five academic divisions of E&H: Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Visual and Performing Arts and Education. Other areas include the College’s highly esteemed International Education Program as well as faculty development and research.
Gifts encompass direct support for areas like the E&H Frederick Thrasher Kelly Library, the Paul Adrian Powell III Resource Center and educational technology improvements and upgrades.
Support underwrites the student government program and other important student-led organizations and clubs, student publications, community service organizations, security, the College’s Outdoor Program, intramural athletics and more.
Access & Affordability:
Gifts benefit the general scholarship fund which underwrites financial support to students qualifying for scholarships and work-study assistance to supplement tuition and fees.
The College will reserve the option of reallocating funds among the designated areas in the unlikely case that contributions among those areas become severely unbalanced with just one or two gift options attracting the majority of the donations.
