Supporting the Future
Antioch University educates students to think critically, to act ethically, and to pursue a life of engaged citizenship.
With your help, we can provide more scholarships to assist future students to attend Antioch, and we can expand student services and develop new programs. Through your support, Antioch University students will have the opportunity to learn more and be more.
When you make a gift to Antioch University, your contribution will be put to work immediately-providing scholarships for current and future students, funding new programs or creating reliable alternative sources of revenue by building the university’s endowment. The generosity of your gift will ensure ongoing support and help define our future.
Antioch University also pursues funding from foundations and other sources in support of our programs and students.
Antioch University’s academic programs offer diverse experiences that enhance students’ lives, nurture their creative spirit, and prepare students for future leadership roles. Gifts to program development help the University create new academic programs that prepare students for the current employment trends and meet community needs. Developing new programs broadens the educational experience of our students, helps us attract new students, and creates new and exciting educational opportunities based on regional, national, and global needs.
Antioch University Fund
The AU Fund provides general support to the operation of the university. These annual gifts from university alumni and friends enhance programs on each of the campuses. The challenge for the AU Fund is ensuring sustained growth to continue its support of academic programs and related support services
Today, undergraduate and graduate degrees have become a necessity rather than an advantage to potential employers. As funding for education becomes increasingly unpredictable, more and more students depend on scholarships and funds to help them pursue their dreams. Financial resources can make a difference in the ability of students to complete the degree and by making a gift you can give these students an opportunity they might not otherwise have to pursue higher education.
An endowment fund is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding; a gift made on the stipulation that the principal is maintained in perpetuity, and that only income from investment of the gift be expended.
Endowment gifts are invested to provide permanent annual support for scholarships, faculty, curriculum development, and general operations. Endowment funds allow Antioch University to plan for the future with confidence and help provide a secure financial future for our students. You can help the University create a reliable source of future income by expanding the university’s endowment.
Planned giving benefits the university by establishing a lasting legacy. Our Institutional Advancement staff will help you create a philanthropic strategy tailored to meet your unique financial needs. Planned giving may involve bequests, life insurance, life income agreements, annuities, and trusts.
