Show Fisher alumni and friends that you believe in the University’s future by making an annual gift today. You can direct your gift to the School, department, or program that means the most to you, immediately impacting the quality of our programs.

The Faculty and Staff Campaign is an annual Fisher fall tradition. For two weeks we come together to celebrate philanthropy, show our pride, and give thanks. Whether you make your gift during the campaign or throughout the year, we are so grateful.

Thank you for all that you do for our University and our students! You improve our students' experience each day by sharing your time and talents.

 Annual fund donations help me achieve my dream of working at a TV studio! My family had to sacrifice so much to give me this great experience, but your generosity has helped ease the financial burden on them. I have learned so much about writing, film making, and public speaking in all of my classes. Thank you for allowing me to learn about the things I love.  ”

 Having a scholarship has allowed me to experience Fisher, grow as a person, and meet new people. It has positively impacted my future and I will never forget my time at Fisher. Thank you again. ”
