The generosity of Alfred University alumni, parents and friends benefits the University today and propels us toward an even greater future. Whether it's $25 or $250,000, every gift makes the Alfred experience even better.
Every gift to AU impacts our students - energizing campus, supporting close student-faculty collaborations, promoting leadership development, providing study-abroad opportunities and preparing students for life after college.
Each year between July 1 and June 30, we count on the participation of thousands of alumni, parents, friends, faculty and staff who understand how important their annual support is to the University. Together, these generous contributions make a powerful resource that Alfred relies on every day.Spotlight
An important goal of The Alfred Fund is to increase alumni rates of participation. The Alfred Fund and the entire Alfred community benefit greatly when more alumni give to The Alfred Fund, because:
- There is strength in numbers. In fiscal year 2014, gifts of $250 or less combined to total more than $143,000.
- High rates of participation reflect our alumni’s support of the university’s mission and their desire to remain connected to Alfred.
- Publications like U.S. News and World Report consider alumni participation when determining college ranking each year. These rankings heavily influence how third parties view Alfred and affect the university’s ability to secure grants from corporations and other organizations.
