Annual Giving

Supporting Our University's Greatest Need

Investing in Fairmont State through annual gifts allows you to make a marked difference in the lives of today's students. Annual gifts help us support our students and faculty, the heart of the University’s purpose. By establishing a personal tradition of annual giving, you help the University continue to maintain excellence, innovate, and preserve our strength as a regional institution.

While endowments are vital to the foundation’s ability to support the university over the long-term, annual giving provides current-use support for a range of critical initiatives, programs and projects that benefit the entire university community.  Gifts made through the annual fund, The Fairmont Fund, support scholarships for students every year; fund programming in all six colleges and athletics; establish new and innovative projects; provide support for alumni programs, services and events; and develop hands-on, learning opportunities.

Opportunities for Support:

Through annual giving, you can support the department or program that mean the most to you.
