Ways to Give

in this section

There are many ways you can make a gift to the College of Engineering:

The Annual Fund
The College of Engineering invests unrestricted gifts to provide competitive advantages such as leadership training and professional development activities for undergraduate and graduate students, or to maintain and improve the physical infrastructure necessary to perform the highest quality research and deliver the highest quality education.

Unrestricted gifts to the College of Engineering offer flexibility to support various needs of the college as they arise. The dean uses the Cornell Fund for Engineering to support the Cornell Engineering Alumni Association, the Engineering Communications Program, the Co-op Program, Peer Tutoring, Undergraduate Research, Student Projects and Teams, TA Development, and other areas.
