Although expensive, tuition covers only 88 percent of an Ithaca education. The college is fortunate that many parents help bridge the financial gap by supporting IC beyond tuition payments.
Last year, more than 16.2 percent of all parents of students and of alumni made a gift to the Parents Annual Fund. Contributions directly support our schools, athletic activities, and other programs. These vital gifts help purchase cutting-edge technology, bring important lecturers and guest artists to campus, and support faculty-student research and internship opportunities.
