Gifts to the Campaign for Appalachian can be directed to any area of the university. Gifts to the Appalachian Fund, which supports students, faculty and programs across the university is an important way to have a major impact on the Appalachian Experience. A comprehensive campaign means that all areas under the three priorities of Academics, Arts and Athletics are included in the campaign and are part of the university’s strategic vision for the future. Gifts to any area of the university count toward the campaign goal of $200 million.

The Appalachian Fund

Each year, Appalachian addresses critical needs across the university. These needs are as diverse as providing scholarships so that students can attend Appalachian, to making sure our faculty and classrooms are empowered to graduate 21st-century professionals. Every gift to the Appalachian Fund has the power to ensure the Appalachian Experience for our students and make a difference.

If you make only one gift to Appalachian, giving to the Appalachian Fund ensures it will go where it is most needed. If you’re supporting other areas, please consider an annual gift to the Appalachian Fund to help meet the most immediate, critical needs.

No matter the size, every gift makes a difference.
