No matter the size, every gift makes a difference

Each year, Appalachian addresses critical needs across the university. These needs are as diverse as providing scholarships so that students can attend Appalachian, to making sure our faculty and classrooms are empowered to graduate 21st-century professionals. Every gift to The Appalachian Fund has the power to ensure the Appalachian Experience for our students and make a difference.

If you make only one gift to Appalachian, giving to The Appalachian Fund ensures it will go where it is most needed. If you’re supporting other areas, please consider an annual gift to The Appalachian Fund to help meet the most immediate, critical needs.
