We all know that organizations cannot function without the necessary funds to support what they do. This is true of Ohio University, and specifically the College of Fine Arts. The generous gifts from alumni, friends, community members, foundations, and businesses enhance our creative pursuits.
Individuals give for a variety of reasons. Many see their donations as a legacy and make the commitment to endow scholarships for the students of today and future students. Others contribute because they know that scholarships and other financial assistance can make a tremendous difference in attracting talented individuals to the programs in the College of Fine Arts. Offering scholarships shows these students how much we believe in their talent and their potential for future success.
Whatever the reason, giving has never been more important than it is now! With state and university budget cuts, contributions from individuals have become even more valuable. Private gifts help sustain the creative efforts of our students and faculty.
