Annual Giving

The Emerson College Annual Fund raises money for the College’s areas of greatest need. Gifts to the Annual Fund provide vital support for academic programs, scholarships, and financial aid for current students. These funds are flexible and immediately available to support Emerson.

Why should I give?

Gifts support programs and scholarships, which help Emerson to enroll talented students who could not otherwise afford an Emerson education. Your support also helps to increase diversity on campus, retain world-class faculty, fund special student opportunities, and maintain superb resources.

Can I direct my gift to a specific area?

Yes! Where your gift goes is entirely up to you. Give to support the organization or department that had the most impact on you or your student or give to the Annual Fund to help support Emerson’s immediate needs. Not sure where you’d like to direct your gift?

What if I can only give a small amount?

Every gift has an impact! Any gift, no matter the size, makes a difference in the lives of Emerson students.

When should I give?

Emerson’s fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30 each year. Give when it’s most convenient for you, but make sure you make your gift before June 30 to be counted in our 2017 campaign!
