Private giving provides Applied Science students with needed resources to carry out research at a much higher level than we would be able to do with public funds alone.
Private support augments the education and research-training mission of Applied Science. Contributions made at the departmental level fund a wide range of instrument and equipment needs, teaching and curricular materials, as well as other resources that benefit our students directly. Gifts can also be designated for specific initiatives at the department level or even within particular research groups. Our model blends public and private support, and it relies on the contributions of alumni, parents, friends, as well as grant-funding partners.
Many companies encourage employees, their families, and retirees to make charitable contributions by matching their philanthropic support. Matching gifts can double, or even triple, the impact of your gift. Your Human Resources office will be able to tell you if your employer has a matching gift program and provide details on how to secure the matched funds. You may also use the College's Matching Gift Search page to see if your company has a matching giving program.
We encourage you to visit the various Applied Science web pages and learn more about how private support is already making a difference. If you see a match with your own values, and decide you would like to advance your values through a contribution, we thank you for your support.
