You may not know that at least $10,000 of the Annual Fund
is directed towards scholarships for freshman and continuing students.

Today the Annual Fund contributes about $100,000 per year to our College programs and services.

With your help, we hope to increase this amount to $150,000 over the next
year to make an even greater impact.

At any amount, you will make a difference.

Your gift of $50, when combined with gifts from fellow alumni and friends, can support student travel, technology upgrades and help to implement curriculum innovations.

Gifts at this leadership level may be used as scholarships, help bring industry professionals to campus and support study abroad trips
for students.

Alumni and friends help shape our future by naming the College of Media as a beneficiary in their will, trust or retirement plan. No amount is too small.

You can make your gift to any of our unrestricted funds.
