Transforming The Lives Of Others Today
Rarely does generosity have such an immediate impact on the lives of others than through annual gifts to the Fairfield Fund. Why? Because these unrestricted gifts provide flexibility through the immediate availability of resources to be directed where they are most urgently needed. Your gifts to The Fairfield Fund, which is comprised of the Parents’ Fund, Class Gift, Reunion Giving, Phonathon and more, form the foundation of our University's future.
Instruction, Academic Support, and Student Services: Most people don’t realize that tuition and fees account for only a portion of Fairfield’s annual budget. Gifts to The Fairfield Fund create an essential bridge between tuition revenues and the actual cost of educating a Fairfield student, ensuring access to a first-rate education.
Student Life and Career Services: The Fairfield Fund provides resources to support Student Government, Career Services and Student Clubs from the Sports Clubs to the Glee Club, essential aspects of the University experience.
Financial Aid: With approximately 8 out of 10 Fairfield students relying on financial aid, sustaining and increasing assistance for talented students is a top priority.
Institutional Support and Administration: Fairfield University is not unlike a small city. Dollars from The Fairfield Fund make it possible for us to provide the wide range of services and support necessary to keep Fairfield operating at our fullest potential 365 days a year.
Did you know? Alumni participation is the most important measure of alumni satisfaction and is used to calculate national rankings like U.S. News & World Report. So, higher participation = increased value of your degree.
Gifts from our alumni will boost our participation rate while helping to meet the immediate needs of our students. Contributions from Parents and Friends make a big difference too! Help increase Fairfield’s rankings and make a Fairfield education possible for future Stags. Thank you for your support.
