Department Programmatic Needs

Gifts from alumni and friends fill a critical funding niche in helping the University achieve the level of quality expected of the state’s premier research university. Donors may designate gifts, of any size, to the campus, department or program they wish to support.

We could use your support to meet needs that are critical to our future success. Your gift can make an immediate impact on our ability to establish student scholarships, develop a pool of funds to assist students with on-campus housing, support our cultural programming, and aid our speaker series.


Many students who have the desire and ability to attend the University face financial barriers. Scholarship gifts open the doors of opportunity and have proven to help students graduate on time. Consider making a one-time gift or continuing donation to support American Indian studies students.

Planned Giving

Many alumni and friends of CLA choose to support students by including the University in their estate plans. These deferred, or planned, gifts include bequests by will, IRA or retirement plan, gift annuity, trust arrangement, insurance policy, and other means. Planned gifts can be directed toward a variety of scholarships, programs, and departments.

Corporation/Foundation Giving

In addition to raising funds from individual alumni and friends, the Department of American Indian Studies works to secure financial support for the University from corporations and foundations. These range from sole proprietorships to Fortune 500 companies, from small family foundations to some of the largest national foundations. Many friends focus their charitable giving on providing scholarship aid, which is the University’s greatest need.
