The Kent State University Annual Fund raises awareness of the university's achievements and encourages a culture of philanthropy throughout the university community.
Through the Annual Fund, individual alumni, parents, faculty, staff and friends of the university are encouraged to demonstrate their commitment to the university's mission through annual financial support. Creating an environment conducive to philanthropy is essential for Kent State to achieve excellence in the classroom and beyond.
Our vision for the future includes:
- Technology and facilities that provide the latest education tools
- Real-world and international programs, such as research, internships and study-abroad
- Increased opportunities for first-time and underrepresented scholars through merit- and need-based scholarships
