Investing in Clarke is about more than simply giving back to your school. It’s about giving others the opportunity to benefit from the unique Clarke experience too.
Each year, many Clarke alumni make a generous and meaningful investment in the lives of today’s students. In addition to the important role these philanthropic dollars play, Clarke’s alumni participation rate is considered just as vital.
Alumni Participation = The percentage of active alumni giving to Clarke each year.
Clarke’s alumni participation rate is a visible and measurable indicator of our alumni’s satisfaction with the University. The participation rate is used in a number of ways to determine everything from grant awards to national collegiate rankings.
There are many areas on campus that would benefit from your support; including scholarships, student organizations, classroom updates, athletics and much more.
