The Donor Difference: Giving Societies
By participating at these giving levels, you are investing in the education that you received as well as helping current students and faculty. The national reputation of a university depends on donors giving. By designating your gift to the College of Engineering and Computing Dean’s Fund, the College of Engineering and Computing Scholarship Fund, or your department or program, you join a community of involved donors who provide support for the college.
Your company’s matching gift counts towards your donation. Many companies offer a 1:1 match—meaning your donation can be doubled!
