Ways to Give

The office of Institutional Advancement for Kent State University at Ashtabula is dedicated to promoting a culture of philanthropy while elevating our campus, its students, faculty, administrators, staff, and members of our community to a greater standard of excellence.  We are keenly aware that without our donors we would experience a negative impact in how we grow and what we do as we move into the future.  Our donors' passions, interests, concerns and visions are equally as important as our efforts to ensure continued growth and sustainability.

When your make a contribution to Kent State University at Ashtabula, you empower students to achieve and attain a quality education, you take action to ensure our campus remains vital, cutting-edge and responsive, and you take part in transforming the future – leaving a legacy of your passions while enabling others to rise to their potential and fulfill their dreams.

The myriad ways to give are as diverse as our student body, our faculty, and our staff.  Your ideas, your desires and your visions are important to us and will help us to achieve a common goal:  moving forward with bold funding initiatives that are instrumental in fulfilling the mission and purpose of Kent State University of Ashtabula.

Capital Improvements
Education and research require high tech tools, state-of-the-art classrooms and labs, and energy-conscious buildings.  Capital gifts allow us to build new facilities so we can make more discoveries and increase capacity to graduate more leaders.  Capital gifts help Kent State University at Ashtabula to update our existing facilities so they are more functional, welcoming and environmentally responsible.  With capital gifts we become a place of education - in the fullest sense.

Financial issues are the single largest barrier to students seeking a higher education.  Scholarships are how we help people benefit from the excellence that thrives at Kent State University.  We help them become students first, and then the professionals they want to be.  Yet in order to provide these scholarships, we need action.  We need your support for our scholarship programs.  By contributing, you open a door and help tomorrow's students walk through to their future.

Current Operating
Giving to current operations is an immediate way to take action.  It's how Kent State University at Ashtabula supports day-to-day activities and keeps our campus a lively, vibrant and nurturing place.  With current operating funds, we have the flexibility to accomplish our goals - and yours - right away.  We can proactively address an idea or a need, staying cutting-edge and responsive.  We can fill a gap in financial aid, address an emerging research topic or fund a grand idea that spans multiple disciplines.
