Ways of Giving
Making a gift to Emerson begins with you.
Which of Emerson’s priorities do you want to support, where do you want to make an impact, and how do you want to go about it? Are you interested in helping outstanding students attend the College, regardless of their economic circumstances? If so, you might want to give to financial aid. Are you enthusiastic about a particular department or school? Then you might choose to support innovations in teaching for that area, or help to build new facilities.
Once you’ve answered questions like these, we can help you with the details of giving. For example, you may prefer to make an unrestricted gift that can be put to immediate use at the College. For that purpose, you could give to the Emerson Annual Fund. Perhaps you’d like to fund a scholarship, but need income to support you in retirement. If so, a planned gift might be right for you.
Our staff is eager to assist you in determining how you can best support Emerson and enjoy the experience. Explore the possibilities and then let us know what we can do to help.
Your gifts help Emerson maintain its top-notch resources, including its costume shop.
WHAT your gifts enable Emerson to do
Enroll the most talented students by offering competitive financial aid packages and an outstanding, hands-on educational experience.
Increase diversity on campus, and ultimately in the industry, by providing scholarships to promising students who would otherwise be unable to attend.
Recruit and retain a world-class faculty by providing ongoing professional development and research opportunities.
Fund special student opportunities, from the cherished EVVY Awards and Kasteel Well study abroad program in the Netherlands to our 2008 media coverage of the Beijing Olympics, and the nation's best campus radio station, WERS 88.9 FM.
Maintain superb resources, including a well-stocked library and state-of-the-art production facilities and studios.
Attract additional funding from corporations and foundations, many of which consider the percentage of alumni, parents, faculty, and staff who donate when deciding whether or not to make a gift.
