Annual Fund

The Annual Fund provides continuing support for the school’s outstanding faculty, challenging programs, student tuition aid, library acquisitions as well as materials and supplies for academics, arts, athletics and activities.

Online Giving: If you wish, you may pledge or donate online.

Securities: Contributing appreciated securities could be advantageous to you, as you may avoid capital gains taxes and reduce your taxable income by deducting the full current market value of the securities. Please have your broker call Burroughs when you have decided what stock(s) you will be giving, and then send us a copy of the letter of instruction:
