Financial flexibility with an immediate impact.
Annual gifts, or unrestricted gifts, allow William & Mary and its various constituent schools and programs to address their most immediate needs. Meant to be spent right away, annual gifts support such priorities as scholarships and fellowships, faculty research and development, student research, new equipment and special programs.
Fund for William and Mary
Like any family or community, William & Mary has day-to-day expenses that require a healthy, versatile checking account. Unrestricted gifts, such as those given to the Fund for William & Mary, the College’s largest source of unrestricted funds, help the College meet these expenses.
In addition, annual gifts support William & Mary’s academic programs and graduate and professional schools right now, ensuring that endowment monies will be available for the long term. Put simply, annual funds help William & Mary maintain its reputation for academic excellence.
