The College of Natural Sciences Development Office builds philanthropic partnerships with alumni, friends, corporations and foundations by matching shared interests within the college to maximize the impact of investments. We facilitate gifts and pledges of all types and assist donors with outright giving, endowments, and estate planning. We raise funds to build technologically superior buildings and laboratories, deliver cutting-edge research and educational programs, provide students with exceptional and unforgettable student experiences, attract the world's best scientists and students, and find solutions to society's most pressing problems. Our goals are to fulfill donors' interests and represent the dean's priority initiatives to our external constituency.
