Ways to Give

Visual & Performing Arts Fund for Excellence

Our Fund for Excellence can be utilized to address a range of College needs and initiatives.


One of the most impactful ways to attract and retain high quality students is through a scholarship. A contribution to a scholarship fund will directly benefit today's students while safeguarding the future of the arts. Contact the Development Staff below if you would like to support students in a particular area of study, or you can give to our general scholarship fund.
