Emerson’s Annual Fund is designed to address Emerson's areas of greatest need. Through unrestricted support, you will help to create unlimited possibilities.

Educating students is a large part of what the Annual Fund helps to accomplish each year. Most people do not know that tuition only covers 60–70% of the actual cost for a student to attend the College. Emerson’s Annual Fund plays a large role in bridging the gap, thanks to the generosity of alumni, faculty, staff, friends, corporations, and foundations.

Emerson’s Annual Fund supports every aspect of the College—students, faculty, academic programs, residential life, student organizations, facilities, and more. Gifts to the Annual Fund are immediately available to support Emerson students.  

Gifts to the Annual Fund also provide vital support for academic programs, scholarships, and financial aid for current students. Support from generous alumni, parents, and friends also helps to increase diversity on campus, retain world-class faculty, fund special student opportunities, and maintain superb resources. 

Making a gift to the Emerson Annual Fund provides today’s students with the resources to thrive. You will give these students access to a powerful college education—one that allows them to spark powerful change. With this being said, a gift to the Annual Fund isn’t just about helping current students complete their education and fulfill their potential. It’s about supporting our collective future—the next great leaders in the fields that shape our society and culture. The creativity, passion, expressiveness, inclusivity, inspiration, and action that only Emersonians can bring.

Make your contribution today to empower all Emersonians.
