Support Chemistry

Students in laboratoryYour contribution to the Chemistry Department will help our faculty members provide the best learning experience to our students. You can contribute on-line now with your credit card, using our secure web server. The contribution form will be pre-selected to direct your gift to the general academic fund for the Chemistry Department, which supports student and faculty needs directly.

A number of alumni have periodically made donations over the years to help the department, with some establishing endowments that can guarantee long-term stability in some areas. Indeed, expendable private monies from annual contributions or proceeds from endowments currently amount to roughly $30-35,000 annually. Over the next 5-10 years we would like to see yearly private support to the department exceed $100,000 from annual giving and expendable endowment funds.

A commitment to annual giving provides a high level of predictable financial security and allows the department to consider long-term plans and goals. Give to Chemistry

If you are interested in contributing to the needs of the department through a regular/annual basis, there are several funds already established for this purpose, including the unrestricted Chemistry Fund and the Alfred Armstrong Memorial Fund. Endowments to support scholarships, summer research fellowships, and/or instrumentation can be established in honor of the alumni making such donations or any designate preferred.
