The Value of Unrestricted Gifts
Unrestricted gifts are supporting
the priority needs of Fredonia
Donors who make gifts without stipulating how they should be used are providing "unrestricted" funding that allows Fredonia the ability to apply them toward its immediate priorities, ranging from day to day operations to sudden emergencies, to rare opportunities.
The world around Fredonia constantly changes, and the dynamism of the campus reflects this. But with these changes come new economic realities and pressures faced by students and families, and special diligence must be paid to guaranteeing that their investment is worth every penny. As a result, in recent years, Fredonia has applied its unrestricted gifts to strategically-designed scholarships, as well as grants to assist needy students and to support foundation programs.
Unrestricted, Named Endowments
Unrestricted funds are often the key to conversting a good idea into meaningful action in the challenging and ever-changing landscape of higher education. Donors may establish their own named unrestricted endowment or give to an existing fund.
