Joining together for perennial impact

The Friends of ISE Endowment is a “forever fund.” It will bolster the ISE Department for decades to come, providing vital and sustainable resources to plan, grow and evolve.

Alumni and friends of the department can build their own legacy by creating a fund that focuses support to a preferred area, or by contributing to the Friends of ISE fund. There are multiple ways to make meaningful contributions that are best suited to each individual situation, such as:

  • Multi-year pledges or monthly giving
  • Appreciated securities
  • IRA rollovers
  • Legacy giving
  • Corporate matching programs

We invite you to join us and your fellow alumni in this comprehensive endeavor.
