Make a Gift Today

Private philanthropy is critical to the health and vitality of our programs. There are many ways to give, including outright gifts, pledges payable over time, and permanent endowments. All gifts are tax-deductible and may be directed to the area of greatest interest to you, from teaching and research; to student opportunities; to community programs locally, in Africa, and beyond. Whether you give $5 or $5 million, we look forward to discussing with you about how your gift can make a significant impact. Donate Now.
