Grow Fisher's Annual Fund

The Annual Fund enriches the student academic experience in so many small and critical ways, while enabling the College to meet strategic goals. It supports operating expenses, forming the foundation of all philanthropic giving, and bridges a critical gap supporting the mission of the College. It also supports campus improvements to help elevate and improve the student experience.

An Impactful Investment

Unrestricted dollars from the Annual Fund enable the College to create and sustain transformative student experiences. Maintaining a strong and growing Annual Fund is essential, especially amid the dynamic landscape of higher education that exists today.

The Spire Society, the College’s elite contributors to the Annual Fund, is a network of College leaders and dedicated supporters who invest in our students, our people, and our mission. The collective impact of their support continues to grow.

Your generous gift to the Annual Fund will increase this immediately impacting College resources, expanding Fisher’s flexibility to facilitate individualized and meaningful academic experiences for every student.

There were dancers, large screens, and signage strewn around the space. There were balloons, sashes, and stuffed teddy bears donned in this year’s t-shirt. And the group was back where it all began – in Cleary Auditorium – on a cold February weekend, all in the name of love.
