Building Our Collective Strength

Strength comes in many forms. Strength of character. Strength of mind. Strength of purpose. Strength of community. But no matter what form it may be, for colleges and universities, each one is rooted in the financial stability of the institution.

We invite you to become a guiding force in Drake’s mission through giving to The Drake Fund and membership in the President’s Circle.

The Drake Fund provides essential support for the University’s operating budget, enabling us to recruit the most sought-after faculty and students, retain our outstanding faculty and staff, provide financial assistance to students in need and increase the professional opportunities available to students through internships.

Strengthening Our Today
When you make a gift to The Drake Fund, you help support the most immediate needs of the University, including scholarships, athletics, the arts, leadership opportunities, the library and each of our individual colleges and schools. Whether your gift is designated for the general fund (unrestricted), an individual college or school, the Bulldog Club, Friends of Drake Arts, the Donald V. Adams Leadership Institute, Cowles Library, scholarship support or support of global citizenship, it enables us to enhance the exceptional learning experience that we promise to students every year.

The President’s Circle
Our distinguished President’s Circle plays a significant role in the health and sustainability of The Drake Fund. Members of the President’s Circle share a common bond. They have made Drake and its students a priority and contribute directly to each student’s experiences and success. More than half of all the gifts to The Drake Fund come from President’s Circle members. Membership in the President’s Circle is open to any individuals and corporations that make gifts totaling $1,000 or more to The Drake Fund. Corporate matching gifts count toward your President’s Circle membership.
