Will My Gift to The New College Fund Make a Difference?
Absolutely! Every gift of any size makes a big difference. Student tuition and State of Florida appropriations cover only part of the cost of a New College education. The remaining expenses are provided by the New College Fund, along with support from endowments, grants and other gifts. This public/private partnership allows New College to attract prestigious faculty and top-ranked students from around the world, and to provide rigorous, individualized learning within the state university system.

How Are Gifts to The New College Fund Used?
Gifts to The New College Fund support current year needs including financial aid, faculty positions, faculty and student research, and vital institutional support. A New College Fund gift is a gift of any amount that is not a planned gift, capital project gift or gift to an endowment. A New College Fund gift may be a major gift ($25,000 or more) and/or part of a multi-year gift and includes gifts made to support major college events and series. Most New College Fund gifts are undesignated and used to satisfy the greatest needs of the college in the areas listed above. Some New College Fund gifts are designated by the donor for a particular area of need, such as student research.
