The Alfred Fund

Each year, private support to Alfred plays a critical role in preserving our place as one of the nation's best universities. That is why annual giving is such an important part of our efforts. Alfred University would not be what it is today without this ongoing, unrestricted support.

It isn't the size of the gift, but the number of alumni who give to The Alfred Fund that matters most. The U.S. News & World Report and other publications look at alumni giving percentages to help determine national rankings for colleges and universities. As the percentage of alumni who give increases, the stronger Alfred's reputation becomes.

When many alumni give back, together they make a big difference through their collective generosity. Unrestricted support of The Alfred Fund can be used when and where it is needed the most, allowing Alfred to be responsive to the immediate, changing and ongoing needs of its students.
