Annual Giving

Annual giving empowers Stevens to plan for the future and nurture the next generation of innovators. Your support ensures a steady source of resources for our talented students, renowned faculty and groundbreaking research.

Every Gift Counts

All gifts of any size count for three important reasons. Annual gifts create a stable source of support that empowers Stevens to make far-reaching plans for our students, programs and research. Many publications look at the total number of gifts to a university when they calculate national college rankings. The more alumni show their confidence by giving, the stronger a university’s rank and the market value of a Stevens degree. Corporations and foundations are watching. The more individuals give to Stevens, the more likely our industry and nonprofit partners will support our students and research with large grants.

The Stevens Fund

The Stevens Fund allows individuals to make an immediate impact, investing in the present and future of Stevens. Support for the Stevens Fund enables the university to make choices, not compromises, in its pursuit of academic excellence and to empower programmatic innovation. Every gift, no matter the size, contributes to the quality of a Stevens education.
