COE Fundraising Policies and Procedures The purpose of the information presented in this document is to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of fundraising and to avoid confusion on the part of donors and prospective donors.
Donate to the College of Education The College of Education is a dynamic academic unit characterized by quality instruction, innovative partnerships with community, and strong and steady growth. Private support for the college helps create an intellectual environment that promotes quality instruction, significant research, and professional service. Your gift, no matter the size, will help provide the margin of excellence that cannot be reached by state support alone. In addition, Dean’s Associates members are individuals or corporations that contribute at least $1,000 annually to the College of Education, and permit the dean to spend the funds where the need is greatest.
Foundation Center The Foundation Directory provides access to this database. The Foundation Center profiles nearly 10,000 grant makers and provides details on funders who grant scholarships, fellowships, grants, and a wide range of financial support to individuals. Profiles include application information, giving programs and limitations, and financial data.
