Support the entire IC experience.

The Ithaca College Annual Fund helps support the entire IC experience. Your yearly gift to the IC Annual Fund helps provide the resources students need to experience a transformational hands-on education.

Because tuition only covers 75% of the IC experience, your support of the IC Annual Fund helps to make up the difference. Your annual gift goes right where it’s needed most — right when it’s needed most — to make students' time on campus the best it can be.

Specifically, annual fund dollars are spent in a way that mirrors how the college's dollars are allocated. And no matter what fresh challenges each school year brings, the following four areas will always require the bulk of the college's resources.

The IC Annual Fund Supports

The Learning Experience

It should come as no surprise that the highest percentage of funds each fiscal year goes towards things like classroom equipment and resources, seminars, guest lecturers, faculty support, and the library — the things that keep IC's academic experience among the best in our peer group.

Financial Help for Students

IC is the perfect fit for students who want a unique, transformative college experience. But many on our campus wouldn't be here if it weren't for the financial help that the college provides. Funding from IC augments federal and state scholarships, grants, and loans to make the dream of an IC experience come true.

Life at IC

Student organizations, sports, counseling, advising, tutoring, a fitness center — life at IC is more than classroom learning. The college is committed to providing students with a high-quality, comprehensive residential experience, and that includes supporting things like the Student Governance Council, multicultural programming, and on-campus wellness services.

Keeping Up the College

Tech resources like wi-fi and infrastructure support, utilities, building and grounds maintenance ensure the college has what it requires to successfully function as an institution and serve the needs of all on campus.

The Annual Fund supports everything about the student experience at IC—club sports, classroom technology, travel to conferences. When I give, I make the IC experience better.
