Clarke University is committed to staying progressive with the times. We're branching out from the traditional giving method to the annual fund. Now there is a new way to give your gift, your way by designating your gift to the area of your choice. Your gift will directly benefit a specific project or equipment need in a defined department as identified by faculty and coaches.
Defined areas include:
- Natural Sciences
- Graphic Design
- Health Sciences
- The Arts at Clarke
- Campus Ministry
- Additional Areas of Support
Our alumni and friends take pride in supporting Clarke, and one of the most direct ways to support Clarke is through a gift to The New Clarke Fund.
The New Clarke Fund is the University's annual fund. Its purpose is to fill the gap between what it takes to operate the University on an annual basis (annual expenses) and what is received from student tuition and fees (annual revenue).
Support of The New Clarke Fund enables the University to:
- Maintain competitive tuition rates—keeping them in line with peer institutions.
- Award academic and need-based scholarships and financial assistance.
- Upgrade, replace and maintain academic resources including technology, periodicals, journals and classroom supplies.
